There’s just nothing that tastes better than real green beans that you pick from the garden. Since I don’t have any greenbeans in my own garden, this past weekend it was time to drive down and see my father-in-law. His garden is always full of the most amazing vegetables and he loves to have the grandkids help pick greenbeans. Now I have plenty of green beans to last all winter long. If you are ready to can green beans, here are the instructions to help you get started.

How to Can Green Beans
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 greenbeans 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.
