This is what I was looking for thank you very much
This was exactly what I was looking for to pickle Romano beans purchased at our local farmers' market. I'm relieved I didn't have to either can or sterilize a jar either. Too intimidating! Very easy to make and quite tasty straight out of the jar or garnish a few on a simple tossed salad with other seasonal ingredients. I used the ever-faithful distilled white vinegar; filtered water and organic unbleached sugar. Thanks for posting!
Liked it but it was a bit too sweet
