Perhaps you will like this recipe for beans. They are fine to serve with relishes.

Dill Beans.

1 peck wax beans
4 quarts water
1 cup salt
2 large stalks dill
1/2 ounce black peppercorns
6 bay leaves
6 fresh grape or cherry leaves
1 cup vinegar

Remove strings and parboil beans in boiling salted water until tender. One teaspoon salt to one quart water. Drain and pack in layers in a crock, adding some dill, a few peppercorns, some pieces of bay leaves; repeat, covering top well with dill and adding grape or cherry leaves.

Boil water and salt that beans were cooked in and when cool, pour over beans to cover. Cover with a cloth; weight well with a plate to keep under brine. Let stand in a warm place to ferment for a week. One cup of vinegar is added now. Rinse off scum that rises on cloth every day in warm weather and once or twice a week when cooler and beans will keep crisp all winter.

(After beans have fermented, they could be drained, the liquor poured over the beans packed in jars, and sealed.)
