  1. Wash beans, drain& trim ends; cut to fit jars.
  2. Cover beans with boiling water, cook for 3 minutes, drain well& pack lengthwise into hot jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan& bring to a boil; cover beans with pickling liquid, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.
  4. Remove any trapped air bubbles- I use a chopstick to do this.
  5. Adjust lids& process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

Talk about easy. I make this for family and friend picnics. One qt. jar lasts 10 minutes. People think I slaved. Be sure your beans are fresh and not to long on the vine.

I am so thrilled to have found this recipe. My mom used to make "DILLY BEANS" when I was a child. They are wonderful and you need to hide them, or your kids will eat them all up. Thanx for posting.

I love this--always have a jar open to munch while I'm making dinner. Also supposed to be great as drink stirrers for bloody marys. I put the cayenne in the bottom of the jar along with a few slices of vidalia onions.
