mustard beans

Makes about six jars of pickles... one of Brad's favourites.

4 quarts fresh green beans
3 cups sugar
1/4 cup potato flour
1/4 cup rice flour
1/2 cup dry mustard
1 tablespoon celery seed
1 tablespoon turmeric
3 cups white vinegar

Prepare your jars and lids. Wash & sterilize.
Wash and string beans and cut into one inch pieces. Steam until just tender.
While the beans are heating up, put sugar, flour, mustard, spices in a pot and mix. Add vinegar and blend. Boil just until thickened.
Drain beans as soon as they turn bright green and pour mustard dressing over them.
Fill jars to within 1/2 inch of top. Try to get all the air pockets out from between the bean. You may have to really push them in.
Seal in sterilized jars 15 minutes in a hot water canner.
These are great in sandwiches too.
