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
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Replace sugar with splenda.
Many recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of splenda instead. It doesn't weigh the same so you will need to experiment a little and it may not work for every recipe, but it does bake up nice once you get the measurements right.
Brassicas, Wonder foods that aid Dieting
(includes Arugula, Broccoli, Mizuna and Daikon)
Vegetablesi in the brassica family are full of vitamins (eg.folate and vit c), minerals (including potassium and selenium), isothiocyanates, antioxidents and indole-3-carbinol.
In addition to their many other great health properties, the minerals, vitamins and nutrients in these are thought to significantly lower the risk of getting cancer.
