Have you ever made your own pickles? A quick “refrigerator” pickle is so much easier than it sounds and no messing around with sterilizing or canning equipment. Just 6 simple ingredients, a night in the fridge, and you’ve got a yummy side dish or snack. Be sure to get the kids into the kitchen to help prep the green beans. They can either use a child-safe knife to trim the ends off the beans or snap them with their fingers. Measure and mix the ingredients for the brine together then pour in into your jar. The hardest part is waiting a little while to give the crunchy, tangy beans a try, but I promise it will be worth it.
