More people are growing their own food this year, many for the first time. Growing and harvesting green beans as we see in the video is one of the easier backyard foods to grow and manage.
We travel from the field to the factory, to see how the freshest green beans are picked, processed, and canned at a “Food Alliance” certified plant.
This pickled, green bean recipe calls for 2 pounds of fresh, green beans, cayenne pepper, dill, and salt, a canning jar and 2 weeks of rest.
Crops that go directly from field to can often retain vitamins better than just-harvested crops that travel through the long distribution chain to your kitchen.
