Ellen's Dilly Beans

1 lb. green beans (or green and yellow beans, for prettiness)
2 dried chili peppers (about 2 inches long)
1 tsp. mustard seeds or 2 fresh dill heads
1 tsp dill seeds
2 cloves garlic
1 1/4 c. white or apple cider vinegar
1/14 c. water
1 Tbs. + 1 tsp. pickling/kosher (non iodized) salt

Cut beans in lengths that will fit pint jars and pack them in, leaving an inch at the top of the jar. To each jar add 1 chili pepper, 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp. dill seeds (or 1 fresh dill head), and 1 clove garlic.

Combine water, vinegar, and salt in saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour boiling liquid over beans, filling jars to within 1/2 inch of rim. Seal and process in a boiling-water bath.

Wait 2-4 weeks for flavor to fully develop.


Can you just put it in the fridge in a container and not can it? How long would the flavor take to develop?

You can put it in the fridge if you are making a small batch, but it takes about 2 weeks for the flavors to develop.
