I have recently attempted to pickle green beans the way my mother did when I was younger. I helped her out but it's been about 30 years ago so I'm having trouble getting the right amount of salt. I am doing pint jars and I tried 3/4 T. and it wasn't quite enough, they pickled but not all the way. One recipe said 1 T. for a quart but that seemed like alot. Can anyone give me the correct amount of sal per jar? Thanks in avance
it all depends on the amount of brine you intend to make. I have seen recipe's that call for 1/2tsp per quart to 1/2 cup for 4 pounds of beans
I take it you are using pickling salt and not table salt?
