It feels like the typical wet West Coast weather is finally here. The rain has been coming down relentlessly for the last 2 weeks. I’m amazed the creek running through our backyard has not overflowed yet. This is a sure sign to bring out the comfort food! Alas I have cracked into the canned goods that I made at the end of the summer. The one canned item that everyone in the family seems to love the most is the Dilly Beans. I had never really tried these before and my running partner SD kept going on and on about them that I simply couldn’t resist. So when I found the recipe for Dilly Beans in a new canning book I purchased I thought I’d give it a try…
I found the Dilly Bean recipe in the above book called “The Beginner’s Guide to Preserving Food at Home” by Janet Chadwick (2009). I really love this book for its straightforward recipes and the vast amount of information for preserving food by drying, freezing, root cellaring etc. I highly recommend it!
I’m always amazed by the level of interest Little C has in partaking in my crazy kitchen adventures. She was so keen to put the fresh beans and dill and other ingrediants into the jars. And it was a great help for me because her tiny hands could fit in the jars!
And my friend SD was treated to a jar and she said they were simply divine
