When I returned from Germany, I was greeted with 5 lbs. (or more) of green beans growing in my garden.
Hmmm, what to do with so many green beans?
1) Give a lot to co-workers, family and friends; Check
2) Make a load for dinner to eat for the next week; Check
3) Pickle a few bottles for future use...... Check!
I followed a new recipe, and it requires you to wait 3 weeks before eating the finished product to ensure the flavors are able to "blend". If they're a success, I will be sure and share the recipe.
