Dilly Green Beans

Dilly Green Beans

Lots of meals start with Salatim in our home; small salads like baba ganoush, hummus, veggies & dip, & pickles.  I quick pickle different veggies as the mood hits &, as is often the case, based on what looks good at a market. You can find my Daikon Radish Quick Pickle recipe on The Feed Feed from 2016, by the way. While we have played around with pickles, I tend to make our family’s standard Dilly Pickled Carrots or Green Beans for every holiday.  Thanksgiving? Check. Hanukkah? Check. Is it someone’s birthday? I totally would make pickles for that kid.

My husband makes the exotic pickles – veggies with lemon peels, spicy peppers, Juniper Berries.  He’s are wild & wonderful & super inventive. Feel free to play with this recipe & bring your style to your quick pickles.

I made these Quick Pickled Dilly Green Beans recently & wanted to have them up on my blog so that you could make them for your holidays. They will be served along with a few other starters in front of a much bigger meal. May whatever you are celebrating be bright & flavorful!


Dilly Green Beans


1 Lb Fresh Green Beans

1 Teaspoon Whole Coriander Seeds

1/2 Teaspoon Table Salt

1 Bunch Fresh Dill

4 cups Distilled White Vinegar



Fill large sauté pan halfway with water & heat until boiling.


Have 2, clean, quart-sized wide mouth Canning Jars with lids ready.


Trim ends off of green beens.


Place trimmed green beans into boiling water & cook for 3-4 minutes or until color changes in beans.


Make an ice water bath in a medium sized bowl.


Shock green beans by placing hot beans into ice mixture.


Divide fresh dill into 4 handfuls, removing some of the stems so that the handfuls will fit into the jars.


Rest canning jars on side. Add one bunch of fresh dill to the jar & 1/2 teaspoon of coriander seeds to each jar.


Rest 1/2 of the green beans on dill in each jar.


Top green beans with a handful of fresh dill and turn jars right-side up.


Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt to each jar.


Fill each jar halfway up with regular distilled vinegar (you are welcome to experiment with other vinegars!).


Fill jars with water leaving a 1/2 or so gap at the top so that the lid does not touch the pickling liquid or a random piece of dill.


Put the lids on the jars and set them in the fridge for a few days.


Ta Dah! You’re Done!
