preserve summer’s bounty of green beans to enjoy all year long. Great in a Bloody Mary, better in a Caesar!

* * *

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:)

    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!!!

    • Anna Sakawsky

      Amen! And in fact, “FDA approved” is typically much worse than just good old fashioned organic whole foods!

    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. 🙂

    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).

    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:)

      Yes, you can absolutely make these without a canner! Just store them in the fridge. They’ll last for quite a long time because they’re pickled.

      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.

“Not eating mushrooms is like not eating an entire food group… And a healthy one.”

Mushrooms have had a bit of a bad rap in the west for a long time. Depending on the type of mushroom in question, they’ve either been regarded as something to turn your nose up at or even something to be afraid of.

But in recent years mushrooms have started gaining momentum as both medicine and superfoods, and with more and more people looking for natural alternatives to conventional (and often harmful) prescription drugs, psychedelic mushrooms are even being legalized and used in small (micro) doses to treat mental health issues with promising results.

The story of mushrooms and the entire fungi kingdom is as complex and captivating as the mycelium networks they fruit from, and the potential health and wellness benefits of adding more mushrooms into our diets and lives are only just beginning to be understood.

I sat down with Louis Giller of @northsporemushrooms for the winter issue of Modern Homesteading Magazine to talk all about the wonderful world of fabulous fungi, how to get started foraging or growing mushrooms at home (even if you live in an apartment!), and why mushrooms of all kinds (edible, medicinal and psychedelic) are rightfully having a moment right now.

If becoming more self-sufficient and optimizing your overall health and wellness is part of your master plan for 2023, mushrooms should definitely be a part of your approach.

When I first started growing my own food at home, the gardening world seemed pretty black and white to me: plants grow in the dirt, outdoors, in the spring and summer. That’s what us city kids always learned in school anyway.⁣

And obviously that’s not wrong, but once you get into gardening and growing food, a world full of endless possibilities starts to open up, including growing food indoors year-round.⁣

Sprouts are considered to be a superfood because of how nutrient dense they are and when we eat them, we get the health benefits of all of those nutrients in our own bodies.⁣

If you live in a climate that remains colder half the year or more, sprouts can be an excellent way to get the benefits of gardening even when it's not "gardening season". ⁣

I've got a full list of tips & tricks on growing sprouts indoors all year round that includes: ⁣

-How to grow sprouts⁣
-Different ways to use them ⁣

Living a slow, simple life isn’t easy in this fast-paced world.

No matter how much I preach it to everyone else, I still struggle with the guilt, shame and “not enough-ness” that I feel every time I choose rest, relaxation, stillness, disconnectedness or being “unproductive” when I feel I SHOULD be working, hustling, moving, checking emails and being “productive” (which is almost always).

We all know that our culture praises productivity and busy-ness, and most of us know it’s a scam that keeps us stressed, burnt out and focused on the wrong things in life. Ultimately many of us end up feeling unfulfilled even though we’re spinning our wheels every day working to keep up with the demands of the world and our never-ending to-do list. Most of us would rather be resting, relaxing, spending quality time with our loved ones and doing things that light us up rather than simply keep us busy. But it’s hard to break free from the societal pressure to do more, produce more, earn more, acquire more and ultimately BE more.

So while I still struggle with this daily, and I don’t have any easy answers for how to overcome this, I wanted to share that today I’m choosing slow; Today I’m choosing to be present in the here and now rather than worrying about yesterday or tomorrow; Today I’m choosing snuggles with my baby boy over emails and deadlines, and while I still feel that guilt rising up inside me, I’m making a conscious effort to remind myself that the world won’t end because I chose to slow down today, and at the end of my life I won’t regret taking this time with my son, but I might regret NOT slowing down to enjoy it.

I encourage you to apply the same thought process to your own life and give yourself permission to slow down and enjoy the gift of time you’ve been given today. After all, you never know when it might be your last day. And if it were your last, how would you wish you’d spent it?

In the dark, bitter cold days of midwinter when we’ve been deprived of quality time in the sunshine and the trees are all bare, it can be easy for almost anyone to feel depressed and to overlook the tiny miracles that are happening all around us.⁣

Signs of life abound, even in the dead of winter! ⁣

Connect with nature and enjoy the little things to help beat the winter blues. Go for a walk in the woods or the park and really pay attention to the natural world around you. Watch the songbirds flitting back and forth, gathering winter berries. Look for signs of greenery and new growth; Maybe even some snowdrops or crocuses have begun to emerge from the ground where you live. ⁣

While most people run to the store every time they need something, you and I are not most people. Oh no friend… We are modern homesteaders.⁣

We’re a special breed, and one thing that sets us apart is that we are always thinking about preparing for the future and about stocking up when the things are abundant (and cheap!) which they aren't so much right now. ⁣

When it comes to citrus fruits, if you live in a place where you can grow them yourself, then you’ll probably have more than you can handle fresh when they’re in season. Knowing how to preserve them will help ensure nothing gets wasted.⁣

Whether you're a seasoned homesteader or this is your first season preserving, I've got a hearty list of ideas of how to get the most out of your citrus fruits for the year to come!

Checking in on all my #homesteadpantrychallenge participants today :) ⁣

During the pantry challenge I always find it pretty easy to make my way through the canned items. A side dish here, a breakfast there, but what about bulk items that we have on hand like bags of sugar and flour?⁣

Well have no fear, this bread recipe is a game-changer! Not only does it only require 3 simple ingredients (plus water), it can be whipped up in a bowl using an ordinary kitchen spoon and it comes out perfect every time. It will help you make your way through that 5lb bag of flour just sitting on the shelf, and it only takes a couple minutes to prepare. ⁣

This is a really nice bread to dip in olive oil and balsamic vinegar or as part of a spread or cheese board. For the full recipe click here https://thehouseandhomestead.com/easy-no-knead-homemade-bread/ or visit the link in my bio. ⁣

Let me know how it turns out and if you decide to add any herbs or other toppings to spice it up, I want to hear about it!

I’ve tried my hand at many skills and tackled my share of adventurous projects over the years. Along my homesteading and journey I’ve tried everything from candle-making to cheesemaking, sourdough bread to fermented vegetables, canning and dehydrating to rendering lard and more. When it comes to home medicine, I’ve learned how to make may useful concoctions, from herbal teas, tinctures and syrups to poultices, salves, ciders and more. But encapsulating my own placenta after the birth of our son was definitely a first, and by far my most adventurous “kitchen project” and foray into home medicine so far.

I have to admit, I was a bit squeamish at first, but I’m fascinated by this kind of stuff and love learning skills that allow me to take my health and well-being into my own hands. I also love challenging myself to try new things and pushing myself out of my comfort zone.

A few of the possible benefits of consuming placenta after birth include:

• Hormones in the placenta can improve mood and lessen symptoms of postpartum depression
• Can reduce postpartum bleeding
• Provides a natural source of iron and other micronutrients
• Can help boost milk production

And did you know, around 99% of mammals are know to consume their placenta after birth? Only humans and marine mammals do not typically consume their placenta.

But more and more humans are opting to consume their placentas after birth to reap the potential health benefits. The most popular way to do so is through encapsulation.

First the placenta is steamed, then it is sliced thin and dehydrated before being ground up into a fine powder. The you add that powder into some capsules using an encapsulator and you’re done!

I’ve been taking 2 capsules 4x/day for the past week. Any real results are yet to be seen but I didn’t want to pass up the only chance I’ll probably get to try my hand at this home medicine project! I mean, you just never know when this skill might come in handy;)

So tell me, what’s the most adventurous thing YOU’VE tried in the name of homesteading and/or natural health? Comment below and let me know!

Since the weather is often cold, dark and gloomy, there aren’t as many fun, free things to do outdoors, so it’s easy to blow your budget on other things that will help you beat cabin fever like eating out, going to the movies and even going shopping just for something to do.⁣

But the flip side to this is that, once January hits, many people are motivated by the fresh start the new year brings and are ready to hunker down for a while and get their finances on track after the holidays. So in many ways that makes winter the perfect time of year to adopt some frugal habits. ⁣
