Green Beans need to be preserved using a pressure cooker but when making Pickled Three Bean Salad the acid in the vinegar makes the green beans pickle and can be bottled using a boiling water canner.
Canning instructions and equipment have changed over the years. Follow up-to-date canning instructions from a reliable source such as USDA Canning Guide

    1-1/2 cups cut and blanched green or yellow beans (prepared as below)
    1-1/2 cups canned, drained, red kidney beans
    1 cup canned, drained garbanzo beans
    1/2 cup peeled and thinly sliced onion (about 1 medium onion)
    1/2 cup trimmed and thinly sliced celery (1-1/2 medium stalks)
    1/2 cup sliced green peppers (1/2 medium pepper)
    1/2 cup white vinegar (5%)
    1/4 cup bottled lemon juice
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup oil
    1/2 tsp canning or pickling salt
    1-1/4 cups water

Yield:
About 5 to 6 half-pints

Procedure:
Wash and snap off ends of fresh beans. Cut or snap into 1- to 2-inch pieces.    Blanch 3 minutes and cool immediately.

Rinse kidney beans with tap water and drain again.  Remove any of the beans that have a split skin or are mashed.  If these broken beans are not removed they will make the juice cloudy.     

Rinse and drain garbanzo beans.  Any skins that are loose should be removed. 
Add beans, onions, celery, and green pepper to solution and bring to a simmer. Marinate 12 to 14 hours in refrigerator, then heat entire mixture to a boil.

Fill hot jars with solids. Add hot liquid, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace if needed. Wipe rims of jars with a dampened clean paper towel. Adjust lids and process.

If you want to learn how to bottle food, this is a great recipe to start with because it’s very easy.

Green Beans need to be preserved using a pressure cooker but when making Pickled Dilly Beans the acid in the vinegar makes the green beans pickle and can be bottled using a boiling water canner.
Canning instructions and equipment have changed over the years. Follow up-to-date canning instructions from a reliable source such as USDA Canning Guide

Pickled Dilly Beans

Note: When following the recipe I don’t put the pepper flakes in with the vinegar water as it calls for. I put 1/8 teaspoon of pepper flakes in each pint jar when I place the garlic and dill in the jars. This gives each bottle an equal amount spice.

2013 was the first time I’ve entered something in the Utah State Fair. I entered a bottle of the Pickled Dilly Beans and won second place. They told me I should have put more beans in the jar. It was really fun and I learned a lot!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

When the beans are trimmed to fit in the jar there are pieces left over that are 1-2 inches long.  Put the pieces in a bowl to use in the following recipe.

How to Cook Green Beans

Wash and trim ends from beans and cut into 2-3 inch pieces.  Measure the beans to see how many cups of beans you will be cooking.  Put the beans in a pot with same amount of chicken broth. Measure 1/2 teaspoon of dehydrated onion per cup of beans.

Cook 1/2 of a stripe of bacon for each cup of beans measured.  Cut the bacon in small pieces and cook until crispy.  Drain the bacon on paper towels and then add the bacon to the pot with the chicken broth and green beans.

Example of the recipe:

  • 4 cups of green beans
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons dehydrated onion
  • 1/2 strip of bacon for each cup of beans.  In this example you will need 2 strips of bacon, diced and cooked until crispy

Cook the beans 20-30 minutes, or until they reach the desired tenderness.  Add desired amount of salt and pepper before serving.  If the chicken broth boils down salt may not be needed.  The broth also gives the beans a buttery taste and butter is not needed.
