 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         fresh green beans -- stem ends trimmed
    2      cloves        garlic -- peeled
                         cayenne pepper -- to taste
    3      large         sprigs fresh dill
    1 1/4  cups          cider vinegar
    1 1/4  cups          water
    2      tablespoons   coarse salt
 
 Blanch beans in boiling water until tender but still crunchy, about 3 - 4
 minutes.  Drain and run under cold water immediately to halt cooking.
 
 Place 1 one clove garlic, cayenne to taste and 1 1/2 sprigs dill into each
 of two sterilized pint jars.  Pack beans upright into the jars, to fit
 within 14 of the rim.  In a non-reactive saucepan, bring vinegar, water and
 salt to a boil; pour hot liquod into the jars leaving 1/4 head space.  Seal
 and proces the jars in a boiling-water barth for 5 minutes.
 
 Store for at least 2 weeks in a cool, dark place before eating.  Serve cold
 from the refrigerator.
