  • CRISP & EASY DILL PICKLES
    by Sister Linda S.


    9 cups water
    3 cups cider vinegar
    ½ cup pickling salt

    Heat brine to boil. Place washed cucumbers in jar leaving ends intact. Put into jar, a garlic clove and a sprig of dill. Sometimes adding a cayenne or jalapeno pepper or a small carrot and celery is a nice change. Pour boiling brine over to 1 inch from top, screw on lid and place undisturbed on the counter overnight. If the jar does not seal in 2 hours, simply reheat the brine. Good to use in 8 weeks.

    Do not try to can the cucumbers you buy from the grocery store. They have a wax on them and will not turn out.
