**Note: Jars must first be put in boiling water for 10 minutes to sterilize
them because processing time is less than 10 minutes.
2 pounds of green beans, washed and cut to fit into jars
4 heads dill or 4 tsp dill seed
4 cloves of garlic
4 pieces hot pepper (optional)
2-1/2 cups water
2-1/2 cups vinegar
1/4 cup salt
