Aunt Ruth’s Dilly Beans
This recipe was shared by longtime Gooseberry Patch friend, Laura Lett of Delaware, Ohio. She writes, "My mom, who always had a tremendous vegetable garden, passed this recipe along to me. A side of these flavorful green beans really perks up a simple meal!"

101 Farmhouse Favorites2 lbs. green beans, trimmed
4 1-pint canning jars and lids, sterilized
4 sprigs fresh dill
4 cloves garlic, sliced
Optional: 1 t. red pepper flakes
2-1/2 c. white vinegar
2-1/2 c. water
1/4 c. canning salt

Pack beans upright into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Divide dill, garlic and red pepper flakes, if using, evenly among jars. Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Pour hot liquid into jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles by gently running a thin plastic spatula between beans and inside of jars. Wipe rims; secure with lids and rings. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes; set jars on a towel to cool. Check for seals. Makes 4 jars.
