While the tomato paste was boiling off (takes 3-4 hours), I did up 6 jars of dill beans. These are Montano beans, a Dutch Princess-style bean that we like very much (non-Monsanto). We had grown a variety called "Strike" for years, but the genetics are owned by Monsanto and that was it for us.
Anyway, this a sweet pickling mixture, but with plenty of vinegar to preserve and make them crisp like a pickle. Threw in a half cut Serrano pepper, seeds and all in for some kick. We keep eating the read ones....not many left
Enjoy the pics
