(2017) Spicy Pickled Green Beans

There are a couple of pickled green bean recipes. Here’s one more from the food blog Popsugar. If you don’t have all the spices, it’s ok. Just use what’s at hand. And if you just want to turn these into refrigerator pickles, then you can skip the information about sterilizing and processing the jar and just refrigerate after the brine has cooled.

You can multiply this recipe by the number of jars of beans you want to fill.

(2017) Fermented Dill Beans

Time to bring out the pickling recipes. I’m sorry I don’t remember where this one came from, but it’s pretty standard. The notes in the recipe are from the original (whatever that was!) source.

If you want to add a little sugar, that works, too. This one is so easy. No heating, just make a brine and then add the beans and seasoning. You could do the same with spears of squash.

Dry-Fried Green Beans

I have no idea where this recipe came from originally, but it’s a fiery way to enjoy these end-of-season green beans. No Sichuan peppercorns? Just skip them. As a matter of fact, skip the peppercorns and the chilies if you want a milder dish.
