  2. Cook beans in boiling water just until tender. Drain well.
  3. In a saucepan large enough to hold everything heat the first amount of vinegar (1 1/2 cups) until it boils.
  4. In a bowl mix sugars, ClearJel, spices and stir to blend well. Stir in remaining vinegar (1 cup) and mix until smooth. Add to boiling vinegar and stir constantly until mixture returns to a boil and thickens. Add the drained beans. Continue stirring gently until it returns to a boil. Fill hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 to 1/2 inch headspace. Seal.
