26 servings (serving size: 1 ounce (about 4 beans))

Pleasantly sharp, these are a choice garnish for a cocktail buffet. If you're making the recipe for a gift, the beans look gorgeous in tall glass jars.

How to Make It

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat; add garlic, dill, and peppers to pan. Let stand 1 minute. Pour vinegar mixture over beans in a large glass bowl; cover and refrigerate 1 week, stirring occasionally.

I can follow the directions but it doesn't' explain if you can do this for canning them.

The recipe is good, but unclear. Am I supposed to put the brine in the jar with the pickled beans after the week-long soak? The dill sprig in the picture looks fresh and pretty, can I do that in the jar and not affect the flavor?

The green beans tasted just like tasty pickles. And the recipe was so easy to prepare--followed it exactly. Now, I'm inspired to pickle other vegetables!
