Canning Recipe | How To Can Green Lima Beans

I absolutely love to home can and every summer and fall season I get busy canning a variety of vegetables and fruits for my family. My father-in-law taught me how to can Lima Beans a few years ago and this is how we do it.

How To Can Lima Beans

You want to rinse off your freshly picked lima beans and remove the lima beans from their shells. I like to place mine in a colander and then rinse the dirt & debris away with tap water. Place the lima beans in a large stock pot and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil and boil for one minute, remove from heat. Pack the hot lime beans loosely into clean, sterilized glass mason jars, filling them to within 1 1/2" from the top. (make sure you include water from your pan too). If desired...you can add a pinch of salt. Place the seals and rings onto your jars and place them into your pressure canner and process according to your canner's instructions. I typically process mine at 240 degrees for 45 minutes. Remove from the canner and let cool. They should keep for up to 1 year if properly canned and sealed.
