Since this canning recipe includes boiling water, it is best to start with jars that have been slightly warmed in the oven. This will reduce the chances of having a cold jar explode from temperature changes when you add the boiling water.
Canning salt is optional. It is added to the recipe only for taste. You may skip it if you prefer.
You may waterbath green beans by adding 2 Tbsp white vinegar to each jar. This will raise the acidity of green beans making them safe for waterbath canning. Process in a boiling water bath for 30 minutes once you have achieved a full rolling boil.
