Spicy Dilly Beans

Recipe by Miss Annie

These are great beans to use in Bloody Mary's, or on an appetizer tray, or in your brown bag. I recommend starting with the 1/4 tsp. cayenne unless you know you really like the extra heat. Prep time does not include preparing the jars for canning.

I love this recipe!! I didn't make any changes. The dill flavor with the beans works great. I chopped some of the finished beans and added them to a cold salmon salad that I made and it was to die for. Keep up the good work.
