   ~------------------------------------------------------
   ~----------------- Wash beans and snip off ends.
   Discard any that are wilted or discolored. In a
   saucepan combine water, vinegar, pickling salt, sugar,
   bay leaves, and onions.  Bring liquid to a boil and
   simmer for 10 minutes.  Drop beans into boiling water
   and cook for just 5 minutes.  They must still be
   crisp. Drain immediately and rinse in cold water.
   Pack beans upright in 8-ounce jars with a couple of
   slices of onion.  Add 1 hot pepper, 1 clove garlic,
   and a sprig of dill to each jar and pour hot vinegar
   mixture over the beans to overflowing.  Seal
   immediately. Makes 8 8-ounce jars.
   NOTE:
   ~----
   Thinly cut carrots or other firm vegetables may be
   used in place of or in addition to the beans.
