peeled and cut in half
red pepper flakes for each jar
or to taste
Prepare 7 pint jars, lids, and canner for processing.
Prepare green beans.
Combine vinegar, water, sugar, pickling spice, and salt in 6-8-qt. pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 3 minutes.
Add a two garlic cloves (4 halves) and the red pepper flakes to each jar before packing with beans. (Do one jar at a time, pouring brine over and sealing before moving to the next jar.)
Ladle the hot brine over beans, leaving 1/2" headspace, removing air bubbles with a spatula, wiping the jar rim, and attaching the lid. (Try to get a bit of the pickling spices in each jar.)
Process in a boil-water canner for 10 minutes.
Remove from canner to a towel-lined surface and leave undisturbed for 24 hours before checking lids for seal, labeling with date and storing. Use within a year to year-and-a-half.
