Dilly Beans
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 pounds green beans -- trimmed
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 garlic cloves
4 heads dill weed
1/4 cup canning (pickling) salt
2 1/2 cups water
2 1/2 cups white vinegar

Pack beans, lengthwise, into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch head space. For
each pint, add 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, 1 clove garlic, and 1 head dill.

Combine remaining ingredients and bring to boiling. Pour boiling hot over
beans, leaving 1/4-inch head space. Adjust caps. Process pints and
quarts 10 minutes in boiling water bath.

This recipe yields about 4 pints or 2 quarts.

Comments: You may just use the leftover brine from your favorite dill
pickles. Bring it to a boil and pour over prepared beans in hot jars.
Process as above. And don't limit yourself to beans and cucumbers -- this
works well for broccoli and carrots, too.
