While fermentation is technically a form of “processing,” it’s nothing like the modern techniques that are used to extrude, pasteurize, deconstruct, re-construct, strip down or otherwise adulterate natural ingredients.
Spicy Dilly Beans are the perfect condiment for a Bloody Mary. They are also super easy to make and a wonderful gift. This recipe uses 5 lbs. of beans, fresh dill and dried chilis or fresh red jalapeños for an extra kick!
My ultimate snack is a pickle: Cool, juicy, salty, tangy. And if it can be a bit spicy, so much the better. Dilly beans tick all the boxes. You can settle in front of the tube with a big bowl of popcorn; I’ll curl up with these spicy spears.
