Swap out typical pickled cukes for garlicky beans.
TOTAL TIME: 0:10
YIELD: 2 (16-OZ.) JARS
3/4 c. white vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 c. fresh dill
1 tsp. whole coriander
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
12 oz. green beans
In a small pot, combine 1 cup water, vinegar, sugar, and 2 teaspoons salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the sugar and salt dissolve, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
Divide garlic, dill, coriander, and red pepper between two wide-mouthed 16-ounce jars. Pack with green beans, then pour the cooled liquid over top. Refrigerate overnight or up to 1 week. (The beans are still tasty after a week; they will just lose their color.)
