With all this great produce coming out of our garden I have been busy try to preserve some of the summer goodness. Here is the beginnings of my winter supply.
2 1/2-3 lbs green beans, trimmed
1/4 + 1/8 c canning salt
3 3/4 c vinegar
3 3/4 c water
red pepper flakes
7 cloves of garlic
7 heads of dill
Combine salt, vinegar and water in large saucepot. Bring to boil then turn down heat. Place in jar, 1 head of dill, 1 garlic clove, and 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Pack beans lengthwise into hot jars, leaving 1/4" headspace. Ladle hot liquid over beans, leaving 1/4" headspace. Remove air bubbles. Adjust 2-piece caps. Process pints 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner. Yield 7 pints.
These taste SO good in the winter! We just love them!
