These pickles have a wonderful dill flavour and come out much crisper than recipes that call for cooking the beans first. The chilli flakes give them a nice punch.


Serves: 48 

  • 1kg fresh green beans
  • 2 1/2 cups (625ml) distilled white vinegar
  • 2 cups (500ml) water
  • 1/4 cup (60g) salt
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 bunch fresh dill
  • 3/4 teaspoon chilli flakes

Preparation:1hour  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:21days pickling  ›  Ready in:21days1hour10min 

  1. Sterilise six 250ml pickling jars with rings and lids and keep hot. Trim green beans to 6mm shorter than your jars.
  2. In a large saucepan, mix together the vinegar, water and salt. Add garlic and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. In each jar, place 1 sprig of dill and 1/8 teaspoon of red chilli flakes. Pack green beans into the jars so they are standing on their ends.
  3. Ladle the boiling brine into the jars, filling to within about 1/2 cm from the tops of the jars. Discard garlic. Seal jars with lids and rings. Place in a hot water bath so they are covered by 2.5cm of water. Simmer but do not boil for 10 minutes to process. Cool to room temperature. Test jars for a good seal by pressing on the center of the lid. It should not move. Refrigerate any jars that do not seal properly. Let pickles sit for 2 to 3 weeks before eating.
