  • 2 lbs fresh green beans trimmed and washed

  • 4 tbsp mustard seeds
  • 4 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 2 tbsp black pepper whole
  • 1 bunch of fresh dill

  • Bring a large canner or pot with enough water to cover the jars by an inch on high to boil.

  • Boil vinegar and water. Distribute seasonings in each of the 4 jars and fill each with the raw green beans leaving 1/2" space on top.

  • Using the jar tongs, put the jars in the canner and keep them covered with at least 1 inch of water, keeping the water boiling. Process the jars in boiling water for 20 minutes.
