    This made my day. I’ve been looking at my growing pile of green beans and a growing green bean plant with dread. Now I have a plan.

    Okay, I’m so excited I finally made these! Now when can we eat them?

    Eek! Sorry it took a week to reply- I haven’t checked in in awhile!

    You should probably wait at least a month. I good indication is when they plump up again (they look shriveled right after canning).

    Good for you!

    Is 1.5 cups of sugar the new amount, or the old amount?

      I only use 3/4 c. of sugar now, Dorothy. I left the original amount in case someone wasn’t looking to decrease the sugar in recipes like I am. :)

        Ok, cool. I wasn’t sure if you meant the original amount was 3 cups. 3/4 cup seems like a reasonable amount of sugar, but I’ve never canned beans so I have no idea.

    I made 5 pints of pickled green beans Monday morning – more to do on Friday! You are right, not only are they wonderful, they are addictive, as well. I add dill to each jar, along with garlic and red pepper flakes. Just yummy!! Your mustard – garlic recipe is very tempting. There is something about those little seeds in the bottom of the jar that reek of nostalgia (maybe)? I bought some and have been waiting for the perfect project – I think they will be added to Fridays batch!! Thanks for a great recipe!

    Can I cut the recipe in half for less beans? I am only making 2-3 pints.

      Yes – it easily adapts that way (most pickling recipes do)!

    Do you have to add sugar or could I use another type of sweetener? I’m allergic to sucrose & use honey or agave syrup instead so could I use them instead?

      I’m sure you can, Marion, as the sugar here is just to cut the vinegar flavor a bit. Some pickled beans don’t have sugar, but I’ve always found them to be a bit puckery for us. :) Go with the honey, but add less, since it’s sweeter than sugar and just adjust to your tastes.
