We didn't grow enough beans in our little vegetable garden this year to make a batch of pickled beans. So on Saturday morning, Damien and I headed to the Halifax Farmer's Market to stock up on yellow and green string beans. I then spent the afternoon following my mother's recipe for spicy pickled beans - my first experience pickling anything ever! I know we're supposed to wait and let the beans age, but we couldn't help ourselves and cracked open a jar to have with supper last night. By the end of the evening, the bottle was empty...that means we only have nine jars left! I might have to do some more pickling this week.
