Growing up, canned green beans were a common veggie to go along with dinner. Buttered, with some seasonings, mmm… so yummy! This year in the garden we planted one of our 100 foot rows(by 3 feet) full of beans. After rediscovering them from the weeds, they have started to produce like crazy. There’s something soothing about canning green beans. I feel like it takes me back a gazillion years where it was common place to sit around the table, snap beans, and chat.
So here is how to do it.
- Measuring spoon
- Pressure Cooker
1) Pick or have beans to can (then wash them if needs be).
2) Have your jars ready (pints or quarts or both).
3) Snap off the ends and break into the size you want and place them into the jars (leaving 1″ left from the top).

4) Continue to fill jars until you have 7 quarts or 18 pints.
5) Place a teaspoon of salt in the jar for a quart and a 1/2 teaspoon for pints.
7) Place the lids and rings on
8) Place into pressure cooker and fill pot with water.
