What do you do with extra veggies? Pickle 'em! This basic brine is good for beans, cukes, and pretty much anything else you wanna put into it. 

  • green beans, tops and tails removed, and cut on the bias
  • 1 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • pickling spice or your own combination of mustard seed, dill seed, peppercorn, cinnamon stick, and coriander
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  1. Place the green beans in a glass dish, and put aside
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the other ingredients to a boil. Remove from heat, and let steep for 1 hour
  3. Bring the liquid to a boil again, and strain over the beans. Let sit until cool, cover, and place in the fridge. You can eat 'em after a couple hours, but they'll keep for days.
