Got green beans? Get to canning!


Please read this: I have put up a BBB Winners List page to help you more easily check to see if you’ve won. I started the list with last week’s winner (I don’t believe I’m missing any previous winners) and will continue it going forward. I will be posting the name of the winner here on this same post, and also to the winners list page. Bookmark the link! (You know you’re gonna win one of these days!)

If you lose the link, you can find it again here:

The BBB Winners List link is in the “About Me” section in the sidebar.

    No, you can’t make me Can them! Go out to the garden, pick the big handful that are usually available. Snap the ends and pull any strings. Toss with a little olive oil,kosher salt, garlic, and a sliced on onion. In the oven on a cookie sheet at about 400 degrees for about 15 – 20 minutes. MMMMMM-MMMM I should write that up and submit. :D
    But I would like a BBB for the rest of my garden.

    Would love the BBB…
    Used to can all those lovelys…When I grew up..We were designated a small knife, bowl, waste bowl, a bushel of beans and a green bean lecture…
    Look the bean..string the bean..snap the top, pull the string down to the tail, snap the tail and back up..keeping one long string tail intact…no tiny strings pieces showing (hard to do)never could keep one intact..LOL Next check bean for spots and cut out..(spots spoiled the jar)..then snap bean in equal lengths 1 1/2 inches to 1 3/4 inches…so when canned they would look even and cook even…and Mom said the jars would pack easier and look beautiful if even in size…If you’re going to plant’em, raise’em and pick’em then they might as well look like a blue ribbon work of art when you can’em whether you enter them in the fair or not…….LOL

The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
