Dilly Green Beans Recipe
4 lb table perfect whole green beans
1 3/4 tsp crushed dried hot red pepper
3 1/2 tsp dried dill seed, or 7 fresh dill he, ads
7 cloves fresh garlic
5 cup vinegar
5 cup water
1 cup less 1 tablespoon pickling salt (no, n-iodized)
Wash beans thoroughly, remove stems and tips, and cut them as much as
possible in uniform lengths to allow them to stand upright in 1-pint
canning jars, coming to the shoulder of the jar. Have jars clean and
very hot, and lids and sealers ready in scalding water. In each jar
place 1 dill head or 1/2 teaspoon dill seed, add 1 garlic clove and
1/4 teaspoon crushed hot red pepper. Pack beans upright in jars,
leaving 1 inch of headroom. Heat together the water. vinegar and
salt; when the mixture boils, pour it over the beans, filling each
jar to 1/2 inch from the top. Run a plastic knife down and around to
remove trapped air, adjust lids, and process in a 185F. bath for 10
minutes after the water in the canner returns to a simmer. Remove
jars, complete seals if necessary.
The beans are almost garden-crisp, but the high acidity of the vinegar
allows this boiling-water bath to be safe for a low acid food.
If you substitute ground cayenne pepper for the crushed hot red
pepper, halve the amount of cayenne: use only 1/8 teaspoon cayenne to
Wait at least two weeks for these beans to develop their flavor.

NOTE: I prefer to put in one whole dried or fresh (preferably)
serrano or Cayenne type pepper. It will not make the beans too
spicy, but will add a delightful tang, much as commercial pickled
"hot" okra, which is not really hot to my leather palate. JMH

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Don't skip meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body must have energy, and carbs are a very efficient source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires more care in managing your energy intake, as any energy contributed by non-carbohydrate sources is far slower to act.
Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes carrots, collard greens and tomato puree)
These orange and green healthy plants contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene thought to help in helping stop cancer, spefically cancer of the esophagus. A good number are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss regime.
