Directions:
Directions:
Come home from work, go to the garden and pick Green Beans. After evening meal, turn on TV find a good movie and start snapping green beans. After all are snapped, wash several times and take out any end or bad pieces. Put in refridgerator. Next day after work, put beans in a big pot cover with water, bring to a boil. Boil and stir good for a few minutes. ( They need to be good and hot.) Place beans in sterilized jars, leaving a head space of 1" or more. Add 1 tsp of salt to eat jar, seal each jar with sterlized cap and rings. place in pressure cooker on rack that has water to the guide line on pressure cooker. Pressure on 10 lbs. for 30 minutes. Let cooker cool and pressure go down to 0. Remove pressure guage, take off lid of cooker, lift jars of beans out and place on towel on counter.( use jar lifter as beans will still be hot. ) Cover over with dish towel. Check lids or caps to make sure they seal, I tap or press down a little in the center after they cool. Store on shelf or in boxes. Can goods keep their color better in boxes then on a shelf. Thse stay good for several years. I use a miromatic pressure cooker that has a round guage you place on cooker for the marked amount of pressure you want. This type of cooker is safer. Other cookers have the guage built on lid and you have to watch the guage to keep it on the right amount of pressure. If you happen to forget and it gets to high it can cause the cooker to blow the guages and hot steam comes out and can burn you very badly. Please always read your instruction manuals and abide by the directions.
