Directions

  1. Sterilize 8 (1 pint) jars in boiling water for at least 5 minutes.
  2. Combine the water, pickling salt and vinegar in a large pot, and bring to a boil. When it begins to boil, reduce heat to low, and keep at a simmer while you pack the jars.
  3. In each jar place the following: 1 head of dill, 1 tablespoon of pickling spice, 1 tablespoon of mustard seed, 1 dried chile pepper, 2 cloves of garlic, and 1/8 teaspoon of alum. Pack beans into the spiced jars in a standing position.
  4. Ladle the hot brine into jars, leaving 1/2 inch of space at the top. Screw the lids onto the jars, and process in a hot water bath for 6 minutes to seal. Store for at least 2 weeks before eating.

You have to really like pickled green beans to enjoy this recipe! I also grew up in Utah, and yes, this is a popular way to preserve the mother load of green beans most people grow in their gigantic gardens here. I am not a huge fan of really spicy food, so I tweaked the amount of chile peppers. I only used two that I divided between the 8 jars. It gave it a little zing, but it was not over powering. REMEMBER, THIS IS FOR 8 PINT JARS! It isn't too salty if prepared correctly. Happy Canning! :)

The first time I tried dilly beans was over 10 years ago, and haven't had them since. I made them this summer out of our garden fare and these are delicious! On half the jars I left out the pepper and they are still delicious. I also used about 1/2 the pickling spice and 1/2 the mustard seed, and the flavor was still great. I might leave out all the pickling spice and put in all the mustard next time. Great recipe!
