    42 people made this

    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!

    Serves: 8 

    • 1 kg fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
    • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
    • 8 sprigs fresh dill
    • 4 teaspoons salt
    • 600ml distilled cider vinegar
    • 600ml water

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Cut green beans to fit inside canning jars.
    2. Place green beans in a steamer over 2.5cm of boiling water; cover. Cook until tender but still firm, for 3 minutes. Plunge beans into ice water. Drain well.
    3. Pack the beans into four hot, sterilised jars. Place 1 clove garlic and 2 sprigs dill in each jar against the glass. Add 1 teaspoon of salt to each jar.
    4. In a large saucepan over high heat, bring vinegar and water to the boil. Pour over beans. Fit the jars with lids and rings and process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.

    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


    I have been making Dilly Beans for years and everyone now just expects to get a jar at Christmas. If you like things a little spicy, try putting a 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper or some red capsicum flakes in each jar with the garlic and dill. - 29 Sep 2008
