Preparation
STEP 1

Make an ice water bath for beans in a large bowl or clean sink.

STEP 2

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add salt then add beans, 1/2 pound at a time. Boil for 1 minute then remove and place in ice bath. Remove beans from ice water when cooled and dry with paper towels. Arrange beans vertically in a clean 1-quart jar.

STEP 3

Combine vinegar, water, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, peppercorns, ginger and garlic in a medium, non-reactive saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute.

STEP 4

Pour hot brine over beans to cover by 1/2 inch. Leave 1/2 inch of room between top of liquid and lid.

STEP 5

Cool, cover and store in refrigerator for up to 1 month.

Options

Try this with asparagus or add other veggies that don’t need blanching such as carrot sticks, bell pepper slices, cucumbers or onions, but don’t forget to make more liquid and have more jars.
