Overnight Sweet Pickled Green Beans
These Overnight Sweet Pickled Green Beans couldn’t be any easier. Or tastier! It’s a great and easy quick pickle recipe that any green bean lover needs in their repertoire!
ALL THINGS PICKLED
I have a major love affair with any and all things pickled. Cucumbers, green beans, carrots, cauliflower, radishes, cabbage….you name it. If it involves vinegar and vegetables, I’m all in. This quick pickle recipe for green beans is my latest obsession- just barely sweet, a nice vinegar-y bite, still crunchy, and totally addictive.
MAKING QUICK PICKLED GREEN BEANS
I like making quick pickled green beans more than I like canning dilly green beans. For one the quick pickle is just that…..quick. They’re ridiculously simple to make. I also think the quick brine keeps the green beans crispier than when you preserve them in a water bath or other canning method. Sure they don’t last as long but we eat the green beans fast enough that it’s never really an issue.
HOW TO ENJOY PICKLED GREEN BEANS
There are SO many ways to eat these pickled beauties. I love them as is for a quick snack but they’re awesome in egg salad or chicken salad, as a condiment in a bloody mary (yes!!!!!!!) and I also like to use them in green salads. They’re also perfect on a cheese platter or any kind of appetizer spread.
HOW TO STORE PICKLED GREEN BEANS
When I make any kind of pickled anything, I always store it in glass. Pouring a vinegar solution over something and then storing in plastic weirds me out a bit. I don’t want to worry about the plastic leaching into the brine. I have oodles of mason jars so almost exclusively use them. I do a quick wash on them first and sometimes even go as far as sterilizing the jars first but I don’t usually worry about it since I’m not storing them for longer than a few weeks.
