Fun to learn of Lazy, Good Food ways of cooking at the first day of the Minnesota State Fair! This idea for Dilly Beans comes from – Sue Bembenek
Dilly Beans. Brine is 1c water, 3/4c white vinegar, 1t sugar, 2t salt. Bring to boil and just cook till all is dissolved. Meanwhile in 2-16oz jars, place in EACH JAR 1 clove sliced garlic, bunch of fresh dill or 1t dried dill, 1/2t whole coriander, and 1/8t of crushed red pepper flakes and 1/4t dried mustard seeds. Fill with fresh green beans, cleaned and tips removed. Large green beans that are over large work well too. Keep beans long, and lay along side of jar until filled. Put cut pieces in to fill the top. Pour brine over all. Cover and keep in fridge. Keeps for a long time. Tastes like pickles Also very good on other vegetables like carrots, cauliflower. Crunchy vegetables. Maybe beets would be good too. Enjoy. Can start eating the next day! 1/4 jar has 83mg of sodium, 14 calories, 3g carbs, 1g fiber, and 1g protein. I put them in grilled cheese sandwiches and where ever pickles are used.
