Here is the recipe for pickled green beans.
The key is fresh beans. I grow my own and they are canned within 2 hours after being picked. I hand pick straight beans and cut them to uniform length to fit within a half inch of the top of the jar. You could cut them into pieces if you want less work but you lose the fancy look. I use Blue Lake or Kentucky Wonder bush beans. Sometimes I use a red serrano pepper in place of the crushed red pepper.

Crisp Dilled Green Beans

This goes in 1 pint jar:
green beans
crushed red pepper (1/2 tsp.)
chopped garlic (1/2 tsp.)
dill (1 piece per pint)
pickling spice (1/2 tsp.)

This is enough liquid for 4 pints:
2 cups water
2 cups vinegar
1/4 cup salt (do not use iodized)

Heat jars (oven 225)
Heat lids and rings in hot water (no boil)
Heat liquid to boiling

put stuff in jar then beans
pour liquid to 1/2 in. of top
put on lid and ring

process in boiling water bath for 5 min.
I don't lower jars into water bath till the water is full boil

Enjoy,
Paul

Dusty - this is a really great idea. Pretty impressive that it stayed so high up on the Hot Topics list for the weekend (when people have more time to relax and chat).

I should prolly bring my "horse site" over here (I race racehorses). Anyone interested in "horse" chatter ?

So, what part of California are you in?

Charger, come on over anytime but leave the horses where they are; might get a little tricky dodging all the "biscuts" LOL.

Dusty :o)

Anyone - quick - I need a gumbo recipe.

Am trying to make a chicken gumbo for tonight and cannot find a decent recipe in any of my books! Am trying to remember: the roux should be light or medium, not dark. But does it have peppers or just onion? And is it oil with the flour or butter? And is the oil olive or corn?
Then what...put the chicken bits in the roux and cook, add tomatoe?
Then the okra? Then the chicken stock? Then gumbo file and simmer..for how long?

Thanks

Charger

Charger, I don't know and never made it but it sounds wonderful ...

Hey, Get on the computer and use your search engine to do a search for it. Just type in Chicken Gumbo and you will get so many versions that it is not funny!

Good Luck,

Dusty :o)
