My husband is allergic to garlic. I was hoping to can some dilly beans this year but all of the recipes call for garlic. Is it ok to omit the garlic and still water bath can?

You can safely leave the garlic out of the pickles and still process them in a boiling water canner. The garlic is for flavor.
