These are great! Dilly Beans are easy, fun, and a perfect beginning canning project. Here is a note for beginners: despite what some reviewers may post, it is NOT advisable to alter the proportions of vinegar/water/salt/sugar in a canning recipe. Canning is about chemistry; the right chemistry preserves your food...the wrong chemistry can fail to preserve the food, and people who consume it can become quite ill or worse. This is why measurements need to be exact, and recipes should come from a reliable source. Please read about proper canning practices in a publication like the Ball Blue Book.

These were great. They were crisp and spicy, but not too spicy. These beans will become a yearly event in my house.

These are so good! I made a few pints of these last year (an experiment as we've never made Dilly Beans) and were blown away by the taste sensation in these little beans. Try putting them on a salad...delicioso! Thanks for the recipe; I added it to my annual canning cookbook.

I made this recipe a while ago and have been waiting for them to mature. It was well worth the wait. Crisp beans that go so well with many dishes or just as they are straight from the jar. We have taken these with hot dogs where they add another dimension to one of our favorite snacks. Wonderful beans, thanks so much for posting.
