1 1/4 cups White Vinegar distilled
1 cup Warm Water

  • Sterilize jars with rings and lids using boiling water.
  • Trim grim beans.
  • In your saucepan, stir together the vinegar, water and salt. Add garlic and bring to a rolling boil over high heat.
  • Meanwhile, pack green beans, a sprig of dill, and pinch of red pepper flakes into jars.
  • Ladle or pour the boiling brine into the jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the tops.
  • Seal jars with lids and rings. Place in a hot water bath so they are covered by 1 inch of water. Simmer but do not boil for 10 minutes to process. Cool to room temperature.
