"These beans are cold-pickled rather than canned. Crispy and delicious, the pickled beans will stay fresh for several months as long as they're kept cold -- if they last that long!"

  1. Stir the tarragon vinegar and water together in a bowl.
  2. Pack each jar with green beans so they stand on end without crowding. Into each jar, place 1 sprig of fresh dill, 1/4 teaspoon of celery seed, 1/4 teaspoon of mustard seed, 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, 8 to 10 whole black peppercorns, and 2 garlic clove halves. Sprinkle a pinch of salt into each jar.
  3. Fill the rest of the space in the jars with the tarragon vinegar-water mixture, place the lids on the jars, and refrigerate overnight.

I forgot to try these the first day but after two days they taste pretty good. I had to make a few substitutions. I mixed tarragon and cider vinegar as I didn't want to buy a whole bottle of spe...

giving 3 stars as that i didn't make yet but definitely needs more salt, and "next morning?" try next week at the earliest

Must have done something wrong, Awful!
