Canning Green Beans

image

Green Beans are an absolute favorite of mine to preserve. Just a simple raw pack (no cooking,  no flavoring) and a trip to the pressure canner. We love to use them in dishes all year long, and the preservation process leaves them a perfect consistency for my 3 year old to snack on plain.
I follow an excellent blogger for all my canning tips,  here is some great info about pressure canning
This year we (I share all my canning with my parents,  the work and the haul) preserved a half bushel plus an additional 5lbs of green beans, all from Old City Acres (local urban farm, love it!)  We made 24 pints, 3 quarts and tons we ate fresh. It’s a labor of love, but the results are so worth it!
