Green Beans and Onions

Adding onion to your prize-winning green beans is sure to please your dinner crowd. For a little more pizzazz, add some sliced sweet baby carrots.
  • Green beans, cleaned and cut into 1" pieces
  • White onions, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine beans and onions in a large bowl. Make sure about 1/3 of the mixture consists of onions. Pack into clean 1 pint canning jars. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt to each jar. Fill with water and secure with lids and rims. Cook in a pressure cooker at 10 pounds for 20 minutes. If you'd like you can replace the green beans with a 50/50 mixture of green beans and carrots. If you are using quart jars, add 1 teaspoon of salt to each jar.

  • Yields: Depends on how many beans you have!
  • Preparation Time: 20 minutes (plus cutting and packing time, which will vary)
