Recipe from Ball Blue Book

2 pounds green beans
1/4 cup canning salt

2 1/2 cups water

Trim ends off green beans. Combine salt, vinegar and water in a large sauce pot. Bring to a boil. Pack beans lengthwise into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Add 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 clove garlic, and 1 head dill to each pint jar. Add 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 2 cloves garlic, and 2 heads dill to each quart jar. Ladle hot liquid over beans, leaving 1/4-inch-headspace. Remove air bubbles. Adjust two-piece caps. Process pints and quarts 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner.
