I remember when mom would spend HOURS upon HOURS, DAY after DAY in the basement canning green beans and tomatoes! I don't really remember that she canned anything else, but I'm sure she did! Well, that just isn't my idea of fun and it's probably about as cheap these days to just buy the canned green beans from the store! But, I have enjoyed canning the few things I have this summer. 3 1/2 quarts of sweet refrigerator pickles, 3 1/2 quarts of salsa and now 3 quarts of green beans. And Tim was the one that snapped the green beans last night while watching TV, which made it even nicer! Who knows! Maybe next year I'll even can some cucumber soup! Just kidding!
These were the cleanest, un-bug-eaten green beans I think I ever remember seeing!
