Canned Green Beans

The beans will not get soggy when you cook them.


  • 2 gallons broken and washed green beans
  • 1 1/3 cups white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • scant (not quite) 1/2 cup salt


Put the broken and washed green beans in a pot and bring them to a boil.

Add the vinegar, sugar, and salt. Bring back to a boil and boil for 30 minutes.

Pack in hot jars, cover with hot lids and rings. No need for a water bath.

When you're ready to cook them, pour the brine off, rinse the beans good, then pour them in a boiler and add a quart of water. Season as you like.

Servings: about 4
Prep Time: 1 Hours
Cooking Time: about 1 Hours

This sounds good but I'm confused about "Servings: about 4."

About how many quart jars does this make? Thank you!

I'm so sorry I forgot to add how many quarts it makes. 2 gallons of broken beans will make 6-7 quarts.

Hugs, Paula

Canning Green Beans:

How much water do we put in the pot to "bring to a boil" with the beans before adding the vinegar, etc? (One cannot boil beans without some liquid) And can one use dill and less sugar? Thanks.
