Pickled Beans

Snip ends off of beans (pole beans). Scald. You can just put them in the sink & pour boiling water on them or put in pot & pour boiling water on them. Drain. Lay out flat & cool.

Pack in crock. Layer of beans & then salt until used up. Put salt in bottom of crock & on top. Boil water & let cool. Cover beans with water. Put weight on top. I just put a plate on top with a jug of water on top for weight. In a 2 gal. crock you would probably need at least 1 kg of course salt (or a little more).

To cook, wash & put cold water on them and bring to boil. Drain & add fresh water. Repeat until not too salt. Cook with pork (ribs).
