Pickled Green Beans Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe produces zippy little pickles and preserves my green beans for months to come…if they last that long. I crank up the heat a bit with cayenne pepper. —Marisa McClellan, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 8, 2013

Really about the most disgusting I've ever tasted. Like a human delebritly tried to ruin beans and make you taste it with their recipe. I've had pickled beans before and enjoyed them.... this recipe deserves to go into a toxic waste dump. I wasted good food and ingredients.

I made several batches after the first batch..They are soo good. I made two batches yesterday and increased the pepper flakes in one ( for me ) and left the pepper flakes out of the other( for my sister) Can.t wait to see how they turned out....Thanks for sharing this recipe...

We tried one batch just to see what they would taste like. They were awesome!! We also added some sugar to each jar and we've since made 16 more pints. Neighbors are asking for more!!
