      Oh, I am in a big canning phase right now – it’s pretty obvious. I just have to do it to quiet my inner Ma Ingalls. If I was a better gardener, oh man…. we’d need a preserves cupboard.

    I can’t grow anything so I would happily and without regret take anyone’s abundance of beans :). I love that you took your pickling to the patio. I’d hate to see a similar situation like your growing light happen with your stove :). Your pictures look beautiful.

      Thank you, Amy! My beans were a giant failure (well, when it comes to growing beans – they were very happy to grow vines that tried to take over the entire garden!) – I’ll have to try again next year! But yes, I still can on the patio. I’m sure my neighbours think I’m nuts! 🙂

    Those look delicious, and beautiful too! And how great that they were fresh from a garden!

      I know! It made me feel like I was a self-sustainable woman (which I’m not) as I made them! 🙂

    The beans look delish but I’m intrigues do you mean Caesar as in a salad? If not mr s must share!

      OOohhhh…. A Caesar is what we Canadians call a Bloody Mary – except it’s not truly a Bloody Mary, because it’s made with Clamato (tomato and clam cocktail) instead of just tomato juice.

      So it’s a drink. A boozy one (though it’s very good as a virgin drink as well).

      But there’s got to be a way to use these beans in a salad. You’ve intrigued ME, Miss Melly! 🙂

      Danni – you’ll have to share with me what a traditional Bloody Mary is made with so I can compare it to our Caesar recipe. I think that only difference is the clam juice.

      And yes, they’re very yummy in drinks!

      Oh, they ARE so good. I surprised myself. (What’s better is that I surprised Mr. Suburble. He was skeptical, to say the least!)

      What-what-whaaaat!?!?!? You have to try pickled beans. They’re delicious. Do you like pickled carrots or asparagus? These are a staple in our refrigerator.

      Let me know if you get a chance to try them! 🙂

      Tasha – if you like pickled asparagus, you’ll love pickled beans. They’re so delicious. They’ve become a must-have for us!

      Let me know if you do, Kadie! I so want to try pickled carrots (and onions).

      I’d be popping into the fridge all day if I had that many pickled lovelies in there! 🙂

    These look so yummy! The last thing I canned was pickled jalapeno carrots and they were a hit. May have to try these too!

    Wow look how ambitious you are! I’d rather try and build a house than pickle something. LOL! I once spent 5 hours preparing a recipe and canning it and wound up with 4 little jars of green tomato salsa that never got eaten. No, no more canning!!! 🙂

      I love it! I get SO nervous when I can/preserve things. All of that work, and cooking, and preparing, and what if it doesn’t work out? I admit – I was a bit daunted the very first time I canned anything. Now I feel a teensy bit better, but even making these beans scared me a bit.

      I DO want to try making my own salsa though. Did you guys not like it? Or was it just that you forgot you had it?

          That’s what I worry about, too. I don’t want to put all that effort into salsa, and then end up buying a jar of the grocery store stuff because I think mine is gross. 😉
