Dilly Beans

I got this from a friend of ours.  My family liked them, so she shared the recipe with me.  This yields about 4 pints.

Dilly Beans

2 lbs green beans

1/4 cup canning salt (I use regular salt)

2 1/2 cups vinegar

2 1/2 cups water

1 tsp. cayenne pepper, divided

4 cloves garlic

4 heads of dill

Trim ends off green beans.  You can leave whole, or break into 1 inch pieces.  Pack beans into sterilized jars.  To each jar, add 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1 garlic clove, and 1 head of dill.

Combine salt, vinegar, and water in a large pot.  Bring to a boil.  Pour over beans leaving a 1/2 inch head space.  Process 10 minutes in water bath canner.
