Dilly Green Beans
This recipe is wonderful, the crispness of the beans and the "dill pickle" taste is amazing.
the recipe is as follows:
What you’ll need:
8 cups water
3 cups of water
2 tablespoons sea salt
1 large handful green beans
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup fresh dill
10 black peppercorns
1. Bring eight cups of salted water to a simmer then blanch the green beans for 30
seconds. Remove from the water and pour a continual stream of cold water over
them until fully chilled.
2. Make the brine by mixing the apple cider vinegar, sea salt and three cups of water
together. Stir to dissolve the salt.
3. Place the blanched green beans into a one quart jar, then pour the brine in,
covering completely. Add the dill and peppercorns. Cover, then allow to stand for a
few hours before serving. Store in the fridge and consume within 3-4 days.
