A crisp, crunchy little pickle that takes advantage of all those extra beans in early fall.
Wash beans thoroughly and snip off both ends of each bean. In each of 4 sterilized pint jars, add 1 dried pepper, 1 garlic clove, and 1 1/2 teaspoons dill seed.
Before packing the beans into the jars, combine vinegar, water, and pickling salt in a medium pot and bring to a boil. While that is heating, pack beans vertically in the jars as tightly as possible without crushing the beans.
Once the vinegar mixture has come to a boil, pour into jars leaving 1/4″ head space in each jar. Wipe rims of jars and lid, tightening the rings until they are finger-tight. Process jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Allow jars to rest for 24 hours, then label, remove rings, and store.
Adapted just a bit from Saving the Seasons.
If you are lucky enough to live where the cherries are aplenty I advise you to print out this Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam recipe and tape it somewhere that you will not forget about it when the cherries come into season! Or you can use frozen cherries like I did.
This recipe was made using the new Ball Jam & Jelly Maker but you can make it the traditional way also.
