Have any of you used Mrs Wages pickling spices for dilled green beans? Did you like it? Thanks.

when I do dilly beans, I just put a clove of garlic, a head of dill and a little crushed red pepper in each jar. Fill with a 50/50 ratio of vinegar/water, and some salt.

To be more precise:
2 lbs. green beans, trimmed
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
4 cloves garlic
4 heads dill weed
1/4 cup canning (pickling) salt
2 1/2 cup water
2 1/2 cup white vinegar

Pack beans, lengthwise, into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. For each pint, add 1/4 tsp. cayenne, 1 clove garlic, and 1 head dill.
Combine remaining ingredients and bring to boiling. Pour boiling hot over beans, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Adjust caps. Process pints and quarts 10 minutes in boiling water bath.
Yields about 4 pints or 2 quarts.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
