Canning Pickled Dill Green Beans aka “Dilly Beans”

My family loves anything dill, especially my Daddy – Ha!  Ha!  (That’s a joke!!)  I was so excited to get these beans to make dilly beans and my Daddy in his girly voice said – “I’m so excited too!”….. He was being totally sarcastic; he hates vinegar, so I definitely did not get the love of dill pickles from him!  But that’s ok – that just means that’s one less thing that he will sneak off my dinner plate.


  • 1 pound Fresh Green Beans
  • Garlic Clove per each jar
  • Sprig of Fresh Dill per each jar
  • Sprinkle of dill seed per each jar
  • Sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes, if desired
  • 10  ~ 16 oz pint jars.

Syrup Mixture

  • cups of water
  • 5 cups of vinegar
  • 1/2 cup of non-iodized salt
  1. Remove ends of green beans and wash very well.  If you have any really long beans break them so they will easily fit in a pint jar.
  2. Carefully place the beans in the jars.  Add 1 clove of garlic and 1 spring of dill in each jar.20180703_062938
