Same recipe as mine, we probably have the same book. I will check out more recipes I would rather have kidney beans. Thanks again, you have been a big help. I will not plant so many next year, lol. My first crop I let go to seed for next year (which I planned on so I thought I should plant a second crop just in case. I hate for things to go to waste, I think the neighbors are sick of my green beans too!

Here's what mine says:

1.5 lbs green beans
1.5 lbs wax beans
1 lb lima beans
2 C celery
1/2 lb onion
1 cup diced sweet red pepper
2.5 C sugar
3 C vinegar
1.25 C water
1 T mustard seed
1 t celery seed
4 t canning salt

I have the 1999 edition. Let me know if you need the rest of the instructions and I will type them out. I think of three-bean as having kidney beans or garbanzos...hmmm. I bet that you could find bean salad recipes on Pinterest with various bean combinations.

Thanks for the great idea. The recipe I have, in the Blue Ball Book calls for wax and lima beans which I don't have but I bet it would be great with just green beans, Thanks.

Are you still swimming in beans? How about a pickled 3-Bean salad?

My copy of the Ball Blue Book has a recipe in the "Something Extra" Section.

They are very low in calories and they are good for you, so if you can make a bunch you can eat them all! I have been canning a bunch of my favorites just for that reason, you can come up with your favorite ingredients out of the garden, can them and your more likely to eat veggies instead of a snack you will regret. I'm canning salsa as I write and I'm canning cabbage with tomatoes, onions, green peppers and carrots tomorrow. Its great if you heat it up with your favorite meat, I like turkey smoked sausage. I have a problem with self control so I'm trying to plan ahead for winter, my favorite eating time lol.

I may need you to keep me from eating all of mine in one sitting! Self-control is not my strong suit!

Spicy dilly beans are really good, I have to limit my boys or they would eat them all in one sitting!

This is my first year making spicy dilly beans. Now I'm waiting, and the waiting is killing me!

I prefer freezing my veggies. I do some pickling during the season. I use pint jars for this and usually on do about to 6 of the different fruits and veggies

Keep on track

Thank you everyone for the great ideas! About the pickling Lily, I have spicy dilly beans, and not so spicy dilly beans about 20 pints done but the other pickle ideas sound great.
Houndlover1 I totally agree with freezing and I do have a bunch frozen but where we live in Maine its hard to tell if you will lose electricity and for how long in the winter I enjoy the frozen more too.
Thanks again everyone! emoticon

Thanks for the added advice here Birgit. I freeze veggies as well as canning. I have gone through 3 Seal-A-Meals over the years because I use them so often. emoticon

Canning kills the majority of nutrients in veggies because of the high heat required. I would freeze them, even if it requires buying an additional small freezer. The investment will pay for it in only a year. Freezing is also much less time-consuming because you can freeze them raw.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

While I prefer plain green beans, my Gram (who raised me) PICKLED EVERYTHING, including green beans and they're nice.

She did pickling (like basic, maybe some dill and garlic) and she ALWAYS did 'hot' versions of her pickling, with cayenne peppers we raised and jalapenos (not together). I'm telling you, she pickled! ;p I don't have recipes in particular but as I said, for the plain version, I'd do it like kosher dills (again, some dill, a clove of garlic and maybe some mustard seeds in the bottom -- of course your salt and vinaigre). Now, that's for quarts. We never used anything smaller unless it's for fruit preserves.

For the hot versions, that's up to taste. I'd say there was about 1/2 C of peppers per quart but you may like more (or less). Again, plain pickling, this time w/o dill -- it'd be up to you whether or not to retain garlic but I'd leave out the mustard seeds, too.

I have an overload of green beans! Does anyone have any recipes I can preserve them with besides plain green beans? I have canned 65 pints already and my second crop it is maturing. emoticon
