  • Fit as many green beans and carrots as you can into a jar, vertically.
  • Add the garlic and bay leaf to the jar, using a chopstick or something similar to slide them down the sides of the jar.
  • Add oregano, thyme, cayenne pepper, celery seed, and peppercorns directly to the jar.
  • Bring vinegar, water, sugar, and salt to a boil in a small saucepan to make a brine, stirring to make sure sugar and salt are dissolved.
  • Pour brine over vegetables in jar, making sure to cover all the vegetables and fill to the top.
  • Allow jar to cool, and keep in refrigerator for 6 months. These will taste best if you allow them to sit in the fridge at least overnight, and the flavor will intensify as time goes on.
