I love dilly beans. I don't have a garden so I buy my green beans when they're on sale and do a pint or 2...or 3 at a time.

This is the recipe I use and it's for 1 pint at a time, I just double or triple the brine for however many jars I have packed.

2 cloves garlic, peeled and slit with a knife

1 tsp pickling spices

2 sprigs of dill weed

1 hot pepper (or more to taste), slit - (I use little yellow pickled peppers)

1 T pickling salt

2/3 C cider or white vinegar

2/3 C water

Place in the jar garlic, dill sprigs, pepper and pickling spice. Pack the cleaned, cut to jar height green beans so that they stand up. Allow ½ inch headspace.

Bring the salt, vinegar and water to a boil and immediately pour it over the green beans. Process in a Boiling Water Bath for 10 minutes.
