Pickled Green Beans

C – I must say, Luke has this pickling thing down to an art.

Real art. These jars are so pretty. He got really creative with each one. They are all so crafty. The cauliflower and carrot one is beautiful. I love that he added red Thai chili peppers to the whole dill pickles as well as the spears. I also love how he layers every jar to make them so pretty.

I must say the Be Mindful. Be Human. refrigerator hasn’t looked this good in a while. Every time I look in the refrigerator there is an array of pretty pickle jars waiting for me. Of course, I like pretty food so having these jars in my refrigerator makes my delighted.

These pickled green beans were probably less colorful and pretty than the others. But, they did a great job standing out from the rest of Luke’s pickled art exhibit. They looked so unique and different.

You almost never see pickled green beans in the grocery store. So, it was fun seeing them in the refrigerator.

  1. My grandmother made a red tomato relish with onions, bell pepper, and cloves. I have not found directions. Have any ideas?
