Zero Calorie Pickled Green Beans

 I went off to the farmers market to get a bunch of good quality green beans to make a healthy zero calorie snack. These are amazing and you can eat all you want because they are a negative calorie food. Perfect for in between meal cravings, because they are crunchy.
You can preserve these. But they don't last long enough in our home. 

1 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 cup kosher salt
1 1/2 cup hot water
2 heads fresh dill weed
4 garlic cloves

4 red thai chile pepper
1 1/4 cup fresh green beans, washed and trimmed

Combine the water, salt and vinegar in a large pot, and bring to a boil. When it begins to boil, reduce heat to low and keep at a simmer. Meanwhile pack the jars with dill weed, garlic cloves, thai pepper and green beans into jars. 
Pour the water/vinegar/salt mixture into the packed jars.

Close the airtight jar and store in the fridge. The beans will keep in the refrigerator for two months. If they don't get eaten first. =)
