Thread: Dilly beans

    Default Dilly beans

    As I had mentioned previously, with the few decent rains we've had
    over the last couple of weeks, the beans have really showed their
    appreciation for the moisture. We've blanched, vac-packed and frozen
    quite a few.
    The green and yellow beans Gerry picked earlier today we've now
    transformed into twelve 500ml jars of dilly beans with enough nice
    beans left for a side dish with the pecan crusted haddock I'm doing
    for supper tonight.
    Everything that went into the dilly beans except the vinegar was
    produced here on the property including beans, garlic, dill, hot
    peppers and water (we have our own well).
    Life is good.

    And you can enjoy those beans all winter, both frozen and pickled. It
    always reminds me of the fun we had growing, picking, and then
    preserving those beans.

    and more rain is on the way.

    i need more dry and sunny weather here
    for a few more weeks. my dry beans are
    coming along and i want to get them picked
    before they sprout in the pods. i picked
    buckets of them the past three days in
    between bouts of rain. some sunshine
    yesterday helped. been shelling what i
    can to make more space in the trays to dry
    more pods.

    that all said...

    yes, it's great to have most of the
    ingredients grown here too for the salsa
    we've been putting up. the tomatoes this
    year have not been great so they are best
    used with something else.

    we need a new roof. ugh. but yes, life
    is good here too.
