I haven't done it with beans, but have with small peppers and kraut, both of which work out OK. Try a small batch and see what you think.

Any other creative solutions?

And sorry if this has been covered elsewhere. I'm still a little new here. Please direct me where to go if so. Love this stuff, though. I've got pickles, onions, kraut, and kimchi all going at once now!


I use a plastic mesh bag of glass marbles you can get at the dollar stores. The marbles will conform to any shape.
