Dilly Beans

These easy fermented dilly beans add a probiotic punch to any meal or snack




  1. Stack green beans upright in a wide mouth quart jar. Add garlic, dill and spices.
  2. Mix salt and water in a separate jar or bowl until salt dissolves to form a brine.
  3. Pour brine over beans, keeping the brine 1″ below the jar rim. Use a fermentation weight or regular size jar lid to hold the ingredients below the brine. Cover jar with lid or airlock.
  4. Let beans sit at room temperature for 1 to 2 weeks. Transfer to cool storage.


In warmer temperatures, beans may have well developed flavor in as little as five days. Try a sample and see how you like the flavor.

You will likely have a little extra brine.

For spicy dilly beans, add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
