This is the way I can green beans very year, for years. You have to use a pressure cooker like it says to can green beans. I also run the blade of a knife down the side of the jar to make sure that there is no air bubbles. Thank you for posting so that others will know.

This will be the first time doing beans this way. I have a new pressure cooker but not sure how to pressure at 10 pounds. I do not have a gauge like the old style pressure cookers.
