Dilly Beans

This is a recipe that Aunt Billie gave me.  I wasn't sure how it would go over but My family really loves it.

about 4 quarts Green beans
1-2 hot red peppers, per jar
1/2 t. whole mustard seed, per jar
1/2 t. dill seed, per jar
1-2 cloves Garlic, per jar
5 C. vinegar
5 C. water
1/4 C salt, non iodized

Wash and drain beans.  Cut into lengths that will fit into the jar.  Add peppers,mustard, dill and garlic.

Combine vinegar, water and salt.  Bring it to a boil and pour liquid over beans and spices.  Fill to 1/2 inch of the top of the jar.  Seal jars and process in boiling water for 5 minutes if you are at sea level up to 1,000 feet. Add one more minute for every extra 1,000 feet above sea level.

This makes about 7 pints depending on how you pack the bottles.
