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.

I have been canning greenbeans like this for years. This can be done without the salt with good results. I always run the handle of a rubber spatula down the side of the jar after I put in the water to get the excess air out. I read that somewhere and just kept doing it!

Did these last year and, on looking up the recipe again for this year's crop, saw that I hadn't reviewed it. Apologies! A perfect way to preserve beans - they aren't over-cooked, and retain that 'fresh' taste! Thanks for a great recipe!

Made these last year...super. Quick, easy and yummy. Just used up my last jar. Great in hamburger bean soup. I will be planting more beans this spring for these...and to think, I used to hate green beans. Far better than canned from the store.

This is the method I am using. I am overloaded with beans this year and this is fast and easy. I am sure the beans will have a great fresh taste and will hold on to more nutrients than the preboiling method I have always used.
