Silly Dilly Beans

Two weeks ago on Saturday with the humidity down at the cottage Marc and I were in the mood for cooking up something. We set out in the morning to Rush's Fruit and Veggie Market and picked up the fresh green beans, garlic and dill that were on our list....

We washed and boiled canning jars...blanched GREEN beans....


made a vinegar solution...peeled garlic...mixed up spices, added garlic cloves and sprigs of dill.


and VOILA we have Dilly Beans... "Marc and Judi's Silly Dilly Beans" silly coming from the way you do things the FIRST time compared to the way you would plan to do them once you got the hang of it. We did have fun though. Now this Saturday our 2 weeks is up and we're ready to try them and see whether Marc DID in fact put in too much cayenne pepper for me...hmmmmmmm...

Do you enjoy canning? Have a great weekend!...Judi xoxo

I have never heard of green beans being dilled but they sound delicous!
I just went to the farmers market yesterday and picked up some fresh green beans and cooked them with new potatoes, bacon and onion. One of my favorites !

I have never heard of beans being dilled. We eat them steamed, at the young tender stage. I do know what I am missing, however. I have also eaten them cooked southern style. :) Gerry
