Mean Beans are a spicy take on what Rick's Mom in Vermont calls dilly beans. Our version comes with extra heat. These prize-winning crispy beans are pickled with cayenne and fresh dill and have an unusually fresh flavor. They make a great hors d'oeuvre wrapped up in salami. Garnish your Bloody Mary with Mean Beans and add the brine for an extra-potent kick. Use the leftover brine to pickle sliced carrots!
serving suggestions: Wrap some beans in thinly sliced salami for a festive hors d’oeuvre. Add a couple of beans and a dash of brine to a Bloody Mary. Put sliced carrots or daikon in leftover brine for 2-3 days for more spicy pickles!
