Canned green beans safe?
A coworker asked me about his canned green beans this morning. He said that he sterilized the jars in boiling water, packed the cold, raw, beans in jars and added water and salt. No acids.
Then He put them in a boiling WBC for 3 hours! Don't ask me how he boiled them for 3 hours, because I was too busy shaking my head to ask him! I'm thinking green bean mush! He did say that his Mother told him that was the way to process them.
I told him that he should be sure that everything sealed and at least bring them to a rolling boil before eating. Then I told him I would ask the experts on here!
