How to Can Green Beans

There’s just nothing that tastes better than real green beans that you pick from the garden. In past years, I would run south to my father-in-law’s garden and help pick his green beans but now, we have our own harvest! I love picking green beans and getting them ready for a full winter of great meals! If you are ready to can green beans, here are the instructions to help you get started.

How to Can Green Beans

Materials Needed


Pick your greenbeans.

Snap off the ends and break into bite-size pieces.

  • Wash your jars.
  • Rinse your beans and pack tightly in jars.
  • Add 1 tsp canning salt to each quart jar (1/2 tsp for pint size).
  • Fill with boiling water.
  • Process in pressure canner for 25 minutes at 10 pounds pressure. Remember to let the pressure canner cool completely before you try to remove the top.

*The green beans will turn a dark green after you process them in the pressure canner. You can see the visible difference in the before and after color and texture.

Now we are set for homemade green beans for the next winter season.

Do you prefer homemade green beans over store bought? Do you can them yourselves? I’d love to hear your stories.
