I love making my own pickles and have a special rack for processing the jars in boiling water. These are easy to make and so good!
Used different ingredients. Used half wax beans and half green beans. Also, substituted dill weed for fresh dill. Great recipe! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. These are SO good... even my 5-year old daughter couldn't get enough. I added a long yellow sweet capsicum to each jar for "looks", too... which added some flavour to boot! - 29 Sep 2008
These are great! People couldn't get enough of them. The earlier reviewer who says this recipe is unsafe because it isn't pressure canned is incorrect. The acid in the vinegar makes this a pickle which means it is safe to water bath. You would NOT want to mess around with the 50/50 proportion of water to vinegar though, that could cause safety problems. The jars come out of the water bath with the beans looking ugly and shriveled but if you let the jars stand in your pantry for at least a couple of weeks the beans will rehydrate and look and taste just right. - 29 Sep 2008
