Smile Pickled Vegetables

I made Dilly Beans (Pickled Green Beans) with this recipe before IP, but it is so easy to sub in any other non-restricted vegetable like okra, cucumbers, asparagus, etc.

Equipment Needed

* Stove
* 4 Pint Jars w/2-part lids
* Large Saucepan
* Large Pot for Processing/Sterilization
* Tongs

Ingredients for Dilly Beans

* 2 lbs Fresh Green Beans (or any other vegetable to pickle)
* 1/4 cup Sea Salt
* 2 1/2 cups White Vinegar
* 2 1/2 cups Water
* 4 cloves Garlic
* 4 heads Dill
* 2 large or 4 small Jalapeno Peppers
* 2 tsp Black Pepper

Dilly Directions
Step 1: Place jars and lids in the large pot and cover with water, bring to a boil. Alternatively you can use a dishwasher with a sterilize setting to sterilize your jars.

Step 2: Wash and remove ends form the beans. Slice the garlic and chili peppers.

Step 3: Combine water, vinegar, and salt in large saucepan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer at least 5 minutes.

Step 4: While waiting for the vinegar mixture to boil pack the jars with beans, 1 head of dill, 1 sliced garlic clove, 1/4 of the sliced peppers, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.

Step 5: Pour the vinegar mixture into each jar until nearly full. Place lids on the jars.

Step 6: Process the jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

Step 7: Store in a cool place for at least 2 weeks prior to eating.

Makes 4 Pints
