Dilled Green and Yellow Beans

August 3, 2010

This past Wednesday (August 4th) my mom and I picked up two bushels of beans…one green and one yellow.  Cost per bushel and 1/9th was $35.  Our plan was to can as many as we could before Matt got home from work.  Working in batches we started by making DILLED GREEN AND YELLOW BEANS following the recipe in Bernardin’s Complete Book of Home Preserving.

Here’s how we made out….

Mixing both the yellow and green beans together with some added red bell pepper is a great way to give a little extra colour and punch to each jar.  The taste says it all!!! AMAZING!!!

As you can see some of the jars are cooling to the side but stemming 2 full bushels of beans takes the better part of a day with two people working together.

From our own garden we were able to include 2 x 1 litre jars to this batch of dilled beans. Most of the beans in our garden are picked and eatten daily…often not even making it to the table.



Put Up Total:

  • 37 x 500mL Wide Mouth Jars
  • 3 x 1 L Wide Mouth Jars
  • 1 x Old Regular Mouth Jar

Plus, some like it hot and Matt definitely does so we added sliced Jalepenos to a few jars.

Put Up Total:

  • 7 x 500mL Wide Mouth Jars
