Dilly Beans Small Batch
Dilly Beans Small Batch is just that, a small batch of one of my favorite things, fresh green beans. I could eat fresh, straight from the farm stand, (rinsed, of course) green beans all day long. Dilly beans, for me anyway, well they’re just plain good.
This recipe makes a small batch of dilly beans. You can make two quart jars like I did or make four pint size jars. The size of your jars will depend on the size of your beans too. I know what some of you may be thinking. “Why in the world would I want to make only two quart jars or four pint size jars of dilly beans? Isn’t that a waste of time?”
Try it Out
The answer is no, it’s not a waste of time. I have never made dilly beans before so this was an experiment of sorts and if they didn’t turn out, oh well, so swell. Today when I stopped at my favorite farm stand, they were selling 2 1/2 pound bags of green beans for .75 cents. Well, that sealed the deal for me, time to give dilly beans a try. If for some reason the dilly beans didn’t turn out, I wouldn’t be out much but if they did turn out, yippee! I’ll be heading back down the highway to my favorite farm stand tomorrow to get me some more green beans. Then I can ‘can’ a huge batch of dilly beans! I proceeded to got in search for my canning supplies.
