I love pickled green beans. Absolutely love them. But they are super expensive (like $7-9.00 for a jar). I bought a jar at the Farmer's Market this morning, which was 7 bucks. So now I'm on a quest to acquire canning supplies so I can make my own. So far, I found a box of canning jars at a garage sale for $5.00. Now I'm on the lookout for a canning kettle. Actually, I own one, but I use it for yarn dyeing, so unless I want to take a chance on poisoning myself, I need a second kettle.
Soon, I hope to be snacking on "Lavs' Extra-Tasty Pickled Green Beans". I'm sure once I've gotten all the supplies and the fresh green beans, it will only cost me about $10.00 a jar :-)
PS, Zaide, remember berry picking @ Frontier Village? And making jam? Good times!
