Canning 30#s of Green Beans

I belong to a food co-op called Bountiful Baskets.  Every week I get a basket of fresh vegetables and fresh fruit!  It's like Christmas every Saturday... waiting to see what goodies we'll have to pick up!!!

Sometimes my co-op has case lots... like last week, I got 30#s of green beans!!!

So this afternoon, my mom, aunt, and I cut up a big box full of green beans in preparation for canning!

I got my pressure canner out... had to find it first!  I'm on my second batch now... My canner holds 7 quarts at a time.  This batch will be a bit zippy... I added a garlic glove and slice of jalepeno pepper!
