Dilly Beans

1118132101

Do you know what these beautiful jars in the top of my pantry are?  They are something I have subconsciously looked to have in storage for the majority of my adult life:  a piece of childhood.

When I made these, I was surprised to find that many people don’t know what dilly beans are, and have never heard of them.  To quote one of my favorite movies, to me this is “Inconceivable!”  My mom made dilly beans every summer for as long as I could remember.  When there was a jar in the fridge, I couldn’t stay away from them.  Being quite the night owl, I would sneak out of my bedroom and to the fridge.  Using the ninja-like qualities that I surely possessed at five years old, I would get one dilly bean out of the fridge.  I snuck it back to my bedroom and sat on the edge of my bed, enjoying every delicious bit of it.  Then I would repeat my quiet quest, over and over and over again.

These beans came out of our garden this year, and since I used my mom’s recipe, they came out absolutely perfect!  I still enjoy them as a late night snack, even though I don’t have to hide it anymore.
