Need Recipe For Pickled Beans

(12/10/2007)

Dear Hur Herald,

I lived in Calhoun County until I was 11 years old. I am now 75. When I was a boy my mother and grandmother made pickled beans each year. I thought they were one of the most delicious vegetables I ever ate.

I have told so many people about them and they always say they eat pickled beans too. They eat some terrible dish that cooks the beans and then adds vinegar to them. They are barely edible.

I realize that you did not establish the Hur Herald so that people could exchange recipes but I would greatly appreciate it if your readers could share a good recipe for Sunny Cal Pickled Beans. I would also need to know which signs are the best for making pickled beans.

Yours truly,

James C. Haught
