Brining Green Beans


  • White or green stringless beans
  • Salt
  • Water


  1. Select white or green stringless beans and remove tips from each end
  2. Wash and dry
  3. Weigh
  4. Prepare sufficient brine to equal one-half the volume of the container (Thu for a two-gallon crock, allow one gallon of brine)
  5. A medium brine, one pound of salt to nine pints of water is needed
  6. Pack the vegetable into the jar or crock, leaving sufficient space for the prepared brine
  7. For most vegetables, it is necessary after 24 hours to add one-half pound, or one cup, salt for each five pounds of vegetables
  8. One-fourth cup salt may be added each week for four or five weeks
  9. Salt should be placed on the covered to dissolve gradually
  10. Several thicknesses of cheesecloth or muslin should be placed over the vegetables and this in turn covered with a piece of board which is weighted down
  11. Again, the beans may be dry salted
