Make Your Dilly Beans

Preserve Your Dilly Beans

  1. UNLOCK and open Appliance Lid.
  2. REMOVE one hot jar. Close lid, but do not lock, to keep remaining jars hot. Place 1 garlic clove and 1 sprig of dill into hot jar. Pack beans into hot jar, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Ladle hot pickling liquid over beans, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding hot liquid. Wipe rim of the jar. Center new lid on jar. Twist on band until fingertip tight. Return filled jar onto Rack in Inner Pot.
  3. REPEAT step 2 until all jars are filled with beans and returned to Inner Pot. Close and lock Lid.
  4. PRESS Pickles then press Recipe 1. Press Start to begin preserving. 
  5. THE APPLIANCE will start sensing your recipe, indicated by the orange sensing light. Then, the preserving phase will begin, indicated by the orange Preserving light. When your appliance beeps and the green Ready light is flashing, your Dilly Beans have been successfully preserved! Press Stop. Unlock and open lid. 
  6. REMOVE jars from inner Pot using jar lifter and place upright on a towel. Allow to cool, undisturbed, for 12 to 24 hours.
  7. CHECK jar lids for seals. Lids should not flex up and down when center is pressed. Remove bands. Try to lift lids off with your fingertips. If the lid cannot be lifted off, the lid has a good seal. If a lid does not seal within 24 hours, the product can be immediately reprocessed or refrigerated. Clean mason jars and lids. Label and share then store in a cool, dry, dark place up to 1 year.
