    out of here's Note:

    I never make this recipe without thinking of picking green beans on my Uncle's Farm. I think I ate more raw green beans than I put in the basket. This is my favorite pickled bean recipe. My daughter always called them "squeaky beans." When you bite them they squeak! NO KIDDING!!!!!!

    1. 1
      If necessary, trim ends of beans so they will just fit into pint jars when inserted lengthwise.
    2. 2
      Pare carrots and cut into sticks that are about the size of the beans.
    3. 3
      Into a large saucepan, turn the beans and the carrots; add enough boiling water so it comes up about 2 inches; bring to a boil; boil just until vegetables are tender--about 15 minutes; drain.
    4. 4
      Into a medium saucepan, put the sugar, vinegar, 2 cups water, and the dill; bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves; simmer for 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Pack the beans and carrots lengthwise in 4 pint jars; cover with the hot sugar-vinegar mixture, leaving 1/2-inch head space.
    6. 6
      Place jars on a rack in a large pan, add hot water to cover jars by at least 1 inch.
    7. 7
      Bring water to a boil, then keep at a gentle, steady boil 20 minutes.
    8. 8
      Remove to cool.

      I made this exactly as the recipe is written the first time. Beans & carrots too soft, liquid too sweet. The second time I reduced the sugar by 1 cup and reduced cooking to 10 minutes. Carrots and beans still too soft. Looked in my mother's old Kerr canning book and it recommends cooking beans only 5 minutes. I was disappointed to loose to batches. Also I wonder what type of beans are best for canning. I didn't like the bush or french varieties.
