Yield 4 pints


  • 2 pounds green beans
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dill seeds
  • 2 1/2 cups white vinegar
  • 2 1/2 cups water

  2. Combine vinegar, water, and salt in a medium-size stainless steel saucepan; bring to a boil, and pour over beans, leaving 1/2- inch head space. Remove air bubbles. Cover with metal lids, and screw bands tight. Process in boiling-water bath 10 minutes.
