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!
