easy to make, but uninteresting in taste. pickling spice may add a bit of flavor. i used thin, small french beans...i think ten minutes of processing was a little too long for this type of bean.
Ginger and Chile Pickled Green Beans
These zingy pickles take only about an hour to prepare, but provide many months' worth of snacking. Serve them alongside burgers, add to Bloody Marys, or just eat them straight from the jar.
