Pickled Green Beans - cjs - 10-06-2008

Finally got these where Roy really likes them and even I like them in Bloody Marys also! Those of you who like dill, why not just add it - we prefer not to have it.

Roy's Favorite Pickled Green Beans

2 lbs green beans
4 sprig fresh rosemary
4 clove garlic, peeled
4 3" strips lemon peel
4 med serrano peppers
2 1/2 c water
2 1/2 c white wine vinegar
3 T. pickling salt
2 T. sugar
4 Grape leaves

Bring a large canner of water to a boil.
Sterilize 4 pint jars and their lids according to mfg. instructions.

Evenly trim the ends of the green beans to fit the jars. (3 1/2")
Place one grape leaf in the bottom of jar.
Divide and pack the beans, rosemary, garlic, peppers and lemon peels among the jars.

In a medium pan, combine the water, vinegar, salt and sugar and bring to a boil.

Simmer for 2 mintues, stirring to dissolve the sugar and salt.

Jean, what do the grape leaves do for the recipe? And are they just everyday, ordinary grape leaves?

Re: Pickled Green Beans - cjs - 10-07-2008

yes, just everyday grape leaves. You know I have no idea about the reason for the grape leaf...this sounds silly, but my mother always did it with her pickles, so I follow the same practice.

I've never used grape leaves (just because I don't have any), but I've heard it keeps the pickles crisp. Haven't made dilled beans in a few years, and I sure do miss them! Enjoy them in the martinis!
