  • 1 pound Green Beans (trimmed)
  • 2 cups White Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Pickling Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Mustard Seeds
  • ½ teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon Whole Black Peppercorns
  • 2 cloves Garlic (smashed)
  • 1 Bay leaf


  • Pack one pound of fresh green beans very tightly into a clean quart jar.
  • Add all other ingredients to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Let simmer for 5 minutes, or until sugar and salt have fully dissolved. 
  • Pour pickling liquid over the beans, cover jar with lid, and place in the refrigerator for two days, to allow flavors to saturate the beans.


If you do not have pickling salt, you can use Kosher salt or pure sea salt instead.
