Pickled beans are one of my favourite things to eat out of a Mason jar. For starters, I’m a self-proclaimed caesar addict – eh fellow Canadians?? You know what I’m talking about;) – and I LOVE enjoying a pickled bean or five as a garnish in my drink. 

But honestly, pickled beans are good enough to eat all on their own, straight out of the jar. And as I always say, that’s the measure of a good canning recipe:)

I actually hadn’t even planned on making pickled beans this summer. We’re just not growing enough of our own to bother preserving them, and I wasn’t planning on buying them this year since I’ve already got lots to preserve and not a lot of time to do it in! But I was offered an opportunity I couldn’t pass up…

Last week I wrote about 3 ways to get free organic food (without growing it yourself), and I mentioned that I recently started volunteering with a local gleaners group called the Lush Valley Food Action Society. The group organizes volunteers to go pick excess fruit and vegetables from private properties and farms who need help harvesting everything or who don’t want the food for themselves. The farmer or landowner keeps a portion and the volunteers get to take a portion home too. Plus, whenever possible, some of it goes to support local food banks and food security initiatives too. It’s pretty cool and you should read more about it here. But I digress…

Anyway, I checked my email last weekend and had an email from Lush Valley saying there was a “green bean glean” happening at a local farm on Sunday morning. Since I’d just come home with about 30 pounds of apples and a whole bunch of cucumbers, I wasn’t going to bother with the pick at first. But the thought of jars and jars of pickled green beans lining my pantry shelves, and the offer of them being free in exchange for helping to harvest them was too tempting. So I packed up my daughter and we headed to a farm about 20 minutes from where we lived.

There we spent the morning picking bush beans for the farmer who not only gifted the volunteers with not just some, but ALL of the green beans we helped pick, he also sent us each of us home with a bag of tomatoes and a few peppers. I think I owe him at least one jar of pickled green beans;)

So, long story short, I ended up with about 10 pounds of organic, local green beans for free. And with that, this year’s batch of pickled green beans was born.

They’re a little spicy, a little garlicky, a little dilly and a lot delicious.

I hope you enjoy:)

How to Make Pickled Beans At Home

Start by washing fresh, crunchy, organic green beans. Remove the vine end and if using a string bean variety, snap the ends off and remove the strings from the seams.

Prepare your jars for canning. For more info. check out my Beginner’s Guide to Water Bath Canning.

Make sure you’ve got all your canning tools ready to go too. Having everything ready to go ahead of time helps to ensure you don’t waste time and your jars don’t get cold when you’re ready to stuff them and pour in the pickling brine. These are the canning tools I swear by:

Next, cut the beans to the length of the jar you’ll be canning them in, minus a ½ inch. Pint jars are the perfect size for pickled green beans. (Cut them ½ inch shorter than the length of the jars to ensure you leave enough headspace when canning them).

Bring equal parts vinegar and water to a boil with some salt to make the pickling brine (exact ratios based on 6 pints of pickled beans are in the printable recipe below). Boil gently until the salt is completely dissolved.

While your brine is heating up, remove the hot jars from the canner and stuff each one of them with one large or two small garlic cloves, 1/4 teaspoon of of dried chilli flakes (or one fresh or dried chilli pepper), and a handful of fresh dill. Then pack each jar as full as tightly as possible with green beans, making sure to leave a generous ½ inch of headspace at the top.

Pour the hot vinegar brine over the green beans, leaving ½ inch headspace. jostle the jars lightly to allow any trapped air to escape, then wipe down the rims, place lids on top and screw bands down.

Process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes. Then remove canner lid and wait another five minutes before removing jars. Allow jars to cool completely on the counter before storing them in a cool dark place.

Allow pickled beans to sit for up to six weeks for best flavour results:)

    One of my jars didn’t seal properly when canning, so I ended up putting it in the fridge the next day. (About 18 hrs later) How long will this stay good, or does it need to get eaten asap? Will the taste even be through it yet, or should I just toss? 🙂

    Thanks so much!

    Can I add mustard seeds, or will that change the acidity?
    I love the recipes that have mustard seeds in it so I would love to incorporate those

    Is it ok to add carrots to this recipe?

    Reply
    • Ashley Constance

      Generally, canning recipes should be followed exactly, because adding or removing ingredients can alter the acidity of the contents, and then the safety can’t be guaranteed. However – in this particular case – the recipe calls for enough vinegar that carrots can safely be pickled as well. So, in this case, you can add carrots, yes.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe, thanks for sharing! Also, I just felt the need to mention the importance of organic produce and that I 100% agree with everything you said. I have recently awakened to just how harmful these sprays and chemicals truly are. Just because it is FDA approved doesn’t mean S—T!!!

    Can I process the filled jars in an Instant Pot, and if so, for how long?

    Reply
    • Anna Sakawsky

      Hi Norman,

      As it stands, the Instant Pot is not an approved method for canning. In the case of pickled beans, it would definitely get hot enough to make them safe to eat, but it could turn them mushy. And in the case of pressure canning, there are no standardized guidelines, times, etc. at this point so I can’t recommend using the Instant Pot for canning. However for water bath canning, all you need is a large enough stockpot that you can cover your jars with water, and some sort of a rack on the bottom so the jars aren’t directly on the bottom of pot. Water bath canners are also pretty affordable. You can learn more about all of that right here: https://thehouseandhomestead.com/water-bath-canning-beginners/

    Hello. Can I use pickling vinegar vs white vinegar? Thank you

    Reply
    • Tish Painter

      Hi Janet,
      The only requirement for the vinegar used in canning is that it is 5% acidity. I can not be lower than that for safe home canning procedures. The container should say what percentage the acidity level in on the label.
      I have never seen “pickling vinegar” in the store before and though it sounds like it should be fine, check the acidity level to be certain. 🙂

      Reply
      • Chloe Ayers

        The past couple years in Canada they’ve been selling 7% vinegar and labelling it picking vinegar. I haven’t been buying it because 5% is enough and I don’t need my things to be more vinegary than needed!

    Hey there!

    If I do not have a canner, can you walk me through step 7.
    “Process jars in a boiling hot water bath for 10 minutes. Then remove canner lid and wait another five minutes before removing jars. Allow to cool completely before storing in a cool dark place.”

    I see that you said if you don’t have a canner then to store in the fridge but was unsure how to complete this step.

    Thanks for your help!

    Reply
    • Anna Sakawsky

      If not using a canner, then all you would ned to do is pack your beans and other ingredients into sterilized jars and then wait for them to cool at room temperature and then put them in the fridge. If you’d like to learn how to can, you just need a large stockpot and a rack to put in the bottom (as jars should not sit directly on the burner).

          Hi Lacey – you turn the heat off when you take the lid off after the 10 minutes of processing time 🙂 just allow things to cool for about 5 minutes before you remove your jars. -Ashley (assistant)

    Just one comment. It is not necessary to use expensive, organic beans , garlic or any other vegetables. It is a scientific fact that “organic” is NOT better than regular vegetables, because it is legal to sell any produce that has a residue of chemicals on it. Any chemical use occurs when the plants are young, prior to producing fruit, vegetables or grain. It is most important to choose good looking, beans/ vegetables /fruit that looks clean, has nice colour and is firm. We have been growing our own vegetables, for 55 years, but they would not qualify as “organic”. We have good health.

    Reply
    • Anna Sakawsky

      We don’t use expensive organic produce. We grow our own using organic methods or, as I mentioned in this post, we get it cheap or free from local sources. I think it’s extremely important to use organic fruits and vegetables and not conventionally grown produce sprayed with pesticides and herbicides. And it’s most certainly not a scientific fact that organic is no better than conventionally grown. There is lots of scientific evidence that organic is much healthier. And just because something is legal definitely doesn’t mean it’s safe or healthy. There are lots of FDA approved ingredients that are not healthy and if you look at the general population, people are becoming increasingly less healthy eating all sorts of “food” that is fully legal to eat. However I don’t think you need to buy only produce that is “certified organic,” if that’s what you mean. So long as it’s been grown organically it absolutely does not need to be certified organic. However, everybody is entitled to their own opinion and to eat whatever he or she wants. If someone prefers cheap, non-organic grocery store produce to organic, locally grown produce, all the power to them! (I’ve got a few family members who feel very strongly about eating industrially produced produce instead of organic because it’s cheaper. They’re not the most health-conscious people, but they are all entitled to their own free will:)

      Hi Christina,

      Yes, if all you have are sprigs of dill you can use these. I would add roughly one tablespoon of fresh dill weed in each quart-sized jar.

        Hi Anna
        Can these be done in quarts.
        If so can you give the amount of garlic , dill,and chilli done should use and processing time if different from pints. Your recipes is exactly what I was looking for thanks?

        Reply
        • Tish Painter

          Hi Shelley,
          The recipe is based off the Ball Blue Book recipe. Therefore, using quarts, you would put 2 cloves of garlic and 2 fresh heads of dill, and also add 2 chili peppers (or 1/2 tsp chili flakes) into each jar. The processing time is the same for pints or quarts. Just follow the rest of the directions as written. Enjoy!

        These are best if you leave them for about 6 weeks first so they have time to really infuse, but technically you can eat them at any time. And they will store on the shelves for a long time too. At least a couple years.

          This will last a long time on pantry shelves. We usually eat our within the year but they would be fine for at least a couple years and probably even longer. I wouldn’t push it for years and years but they’ll last for a very long time.

            Hi,
            I just came across this recipe and I’m excited to try it out. I have an abundance of fresh chilli peppers in my garden and was going to use them. Do I need to leave the pepper whole or slice it in half? If I do leave it whole, will they still be spicy?

          • Anna Sakawsky

            Hi Emily,
            I would make a slice down the center but otherwise leave the chili peppers in tact. It could get too spicy if you release all the seeds but might not be spicy enough if you leave them whole.

For Mother’s Day this year, my husband is teaching our daughter to empty the dishwasher on her own. It may seem like a small feat, and for anyone who has kids who already do this and more, this may seem like nothing to celebrate. But for all of the moms who understand how much quicker and easier it is to just “do it yourself,” slowing down and allowing our daughter to take ownership of this even if it’s not perfect or takes twice as long is a huge milestone, both for her and for us as parents!

While it may sometimes feel like the work that we do day in and day out is just mundane and repetitive, the way we show up every day over many years with our children will have a huge impact on the type of people they’ll grow up to be.

What we teach them—the skills we pass on and the values we instil—will help to shape who our children become as adults, and who they become as adults will help to shape what our future world looks like.

It may seem as simple as emptying a dishwasher, but what this really symbolizes is that we’re raising a capable human being who takes responsibility for contributing to our household and is a valued member of our family. And since she will someday grow up to run her own household, possibly be a mother herself, and contribute to our future society, that means that we, as parents, (and especially us moms!), have immense power to shape what the future looks like through the simple actions we take every day to teach and empower the next generation.

All of that to say, thanks for everything you do moms! You are more valued and powerful than you know.

Happy Mother’s Day, and may someone else be doing the dishes for you today!

Me shopping for Easter candy for my kids, and walking out empty handed because it’s all full of absolute garbage!

I don’t mind my kids having sugar now and again, but I draw the line at food dies, seed oils and artificial ingredients. (Or at least, I try!)

Hey, we’re not perfect, and yes, our kids will get Easter candy on Sunday morning. Ryan has already bought some and I’m sure he didn’t check all the ingredients like I do! I’m fine with the 80/20 rule most of the time. But the meta question here, is why are these types of ingredients allowed in foods to begin with? Especially food marketed toward kids!

Yes, it’s “junk food.” I don’t expect it to be HEALTHY. But it could be made better by omitting the known carcinogenic ingredients that have been linked to everything from ADHD to hormone imbalances to cancer!

Folks, we must demand better. We DESERVE better, and so do our kids.

We said goodbye to a family pet yesterday. My mom has had Zoe since I was a teenager, and Evelyn has grown to love her during her visits with nanny.

It’s never easy to say goodbye to a family member, human or furry. But we don’t shelter our kids from death either. Evelyn was with us when we found our rabbits dead. She went with my mom to say goodbye to her other cat a year ago. And she knows where the chickens go when it’s their time.

Having a healthy relationship to death is important. It is, after all, the only certainty in life.

Today Ryan is heading down to clean out his dad’s place after he passed last week. They had a strained relationship, so our kids never knew him as their grandpa. But still, it’s never easy.

It does, however, teach us to be grateful for every day we’re alive, and to appreciate the ones we love while we’re still together, because you never know how much time you have left.

RIP Zozo ❤️ See you over the rainbow bridge 🌈 🐾

When I first started homesteading, gardening, and trying to be more self-sufficient, I had no idea what I was doing. Everything was new to me, and I had no one in my life to teach me the ropes.

I’m not a second or third or fifth generation homesteader. I’m a born-and-raised city girl who had to figure it out on my own, using books from the library and resources from the internet, and advice from random strangers on social media.

While these free resources have taught me a lot, I’ve also come across lots of bad (or just wrong) advice online, and sadly, I’ve dealt with a jerk or two in the comments section of public Facebook groups.

Eventually I did invest in online mentorship and my success from there was exponential. Now, less than a decade after leaving the city in pursuit of our new life as homesteaders, I’ve not only learned how to grow an abundance of food and troubleshoot all kinds of plant issues to ensure a healthy crop and successful harvest, but I’ve learned how to be more self-sufficient in just about every area of life.

I’ve learned how to
🌱 grow my own groceries
🫙 can and preserve my own food
🌿 make herbal medicine and natural products
💵 create multiple income streams
🆘 prepare for a wide range of emergencies
and more.

Plus, with my husband’s help, he can also
🛠 fix or build most things
so together we’ve got a wide range of skills that allow us to live a more empowered, self-reliant life.

Now I want to help you do the same…

I recently reopened the doors to The Society of Self-Reliance—my private membership program where I teach you the skills and mindset you need to become more self-reliant in every area of your life.

Not only do you get access to nearly 150 step-by-step video tutorials (and counting), you also get monthly live group coaching calls with me, and access to a private, SUPPORTIVE and knowledgeable online community of likeminded folks on the same journey.

For a limited time, you can join The Society for just $20/month (or get two months FREE with an annual membership!).

Come, join a community of people who will lift you up and ensure you DON’T starve 😉

Never before have we had access to so much information at our fingertips. Whether you have a question you need answered, are looking for a tutorial to walk you through a specific task or are searching for a recipe to help you figure out what to make for dinner, all you have to do is Google it.⁣

But the problem is that there's no real way to be sure whether the information you find on line is genuine. Is the person who wrote or shared it actually sharing their own experience, or are they too simply regurgitating answers that they Googled?⁣

As we barrel full speed ahead into the era of AI and deep fakes, it will be even more difficult to know whether the information you're getting is even from a real human!⁣

While it's definitely an exciting time to be alive, so many people are feeling overwhelmed, and are craving a return to the analog world; To a world where information was shared in the pages of trusted books and publications, or was passed on from human to human, from someone who held that knowledge not because they Googled it, but because they lived it, experienced it, even mastered it.⁣

That what sets Homestead Living magazine apart from much of the information you'll find online: We don't have staff writers, we have experienced homesteaders sharing their hard-won wisdom in each issue. And while we do offer a digital version, we're also now offering monthly PRINT issues for U.S. subscribers (Canada and elsewhere hopefully coming soon!)⁣

Plus, until the end. of January, you can get your first 12 issues of Homesteading Monthly for just $1.00!⁣

No matter where you are on your homesteading journey, if you've been feeling overwhelmed with the sheer volume of information and the noise of the online world and have been craving a return to the real, the tangible and, quite frankly, the human, Homesteading Monthly was made for you. ⁣

For homesteaders, by homesteaders.⁣

When I graduated from university with a degree in journalism many years ago, I remember thinking that while I knew how to write, edit, interview, shoot, and handle just about every part of creating a publication from the editorial standpoint, I really had no clue how to actually get published, let alone how the printing process works.

Over the years I’ve followed my passion for writing, editing and creating content, figuring much of it out on my own. From creating my blog to “self-publishing” my own digital/print magazine for the last 4 years, I’ve taught myself most of the practical skills necessary for turning an idea into a publication and getting said publication in the hands and in front of the eyes of many hundreds of readers.

But now that I’ve joined forces with the team at @homesteadlivingmagazine and @freeportpress, we’re all able to level up and reach many THOUSANDS of print and digital readers together.

People are HUNGRY for tried and tested advice on homesteading and self-reliant living. There’s a huge movement happening right now as more people wake up to all of the corruption in the world and realize that many of the systems we have come to depend on are fragile and on the brink of collapse. People are ready to take matters into their own hands by growing their own food, preparing their own meals, becoming producers instead of merely consumers and taking control of their health, freedom, security and lives.

I’m so proud to not only be a part of this movement, but to be at the forefront of it with some of the most passionate, talented and driven individuals I could ask to work with.

Getting to meet and brainstorm with some of the team in person and tour the printing facilities over the last few days has opened up a whole new world of possibilities, not just for me, but for everyone who considers themselves part of the modern homesteading movement. We are growing faster than I could have ever imagined. We’re creating a system outside of the system! We’re charging full steam ahead and we invite you to climb aboard and join us for the ride:)
