Quick Spicy Pickled Urizun Japanese Winged Beans

Walking out in the garden, I noticed I needed to go ahead and harvest some of my Urizun Japanese Winged Beans before they got too big. I went ahead and harvested them and decided to make some quick “refrigerator-style” spicy pickled beans. I’m glad that I did as I love everything pickled and these are delicious as expected.

Note: this same recipe is great with any green bean! However, because I am using a winged bean, I just prefer to cut them so you have a cluster of stars.

Slicing up my Urizun Japanese Winged Bean for Pickling

Note that I did leave the really small ones intact as they are really tender and will have no problem soaking up all the pickling goodness!

I added some sliced Sweet Vidalia Onions and some sliced Elephant Garlic. That does nothing but add flavor!!

We add into the pot the vinegar, salt, sugar, peppercorns, and red pepper flakes as we want to get all these flavors coming together as one.
