Henbogle Dilly Beans

I like to combine wax and green beans in a jar as it looks as good as it tastes.

Dilly Beans

Makes 8 pints

4 lbs string beans
1/2 c pickling salt
8 heads dill, plus a few fronds
8 plump cloves garlic
2 t cayenne pepper
5 c cider vinegar (must be 5 % acidity)
5 c water

Combine salt, water and vinegar and heat to boiling.  Heat jars.  To each hot jar add 1/4 t cayenne, 1 clove garlic and 1 head dill plus a frond or two of dill.  Pack raw beans into pint jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace.  Pour boiling brine over beans leaving 1/4 inch headspace.  Cap and process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
