from the garden to the pantry

up for the weekend, lindsey helped me pick the
yellow wax beans that are coming on strong.
fresh garlic cloves from the garden,
dill and a dash of cayenne pepper 
perch on top of the beans,
waiting for the heated brine
and then 10 minutes in the hot water bath.

i felt such satisfaction as i heard each jar "pop",
sealing in the summer goodness.

organic and homegrown and made with love.


  1. I'm salivating!! Those wax beans look luscious and you should especially enjoy your creation in the dead of winter!!

  2. Don't you love that popping sound?:)

  3. Yay dilly beans, my favorite! So glad you documented this. Your beans are so neat and clean and pretty. You should've seen the mess I made!!!
