Old Fashioned Dill Pickle

Did you know dill pickles were supposed to taste this good? I didn't until the year I decided to try this old-fashioned way of making pickles from the multitude of baby cukes coming up in the garden.


8 Cups Water
1/2 Cup Pickling Salt (coarse)
1 Gallon Pickling Cucumbers 2-3" in Length
6 Garlic Cloves
6 Fresh Dill Heads or Sprigs
2 Tablespoons Pickling Spice
2 Small Hot Peppers (Fresh or Dried)
1 Cup White Pickling Vinegar


Prepare The Cucumbers: Scrub and drain cucumbers removing blossom end (the end contain enzymes which can cause rot).

Prepare The Solution: Place water, vinegar and salt into crock, stirring to dissolve salt. Add remaining ingredients. Place a weighted plate in the solution to keep cucumbers immersed. Cover crock with a tight fitting plastic bag or plastic wrap.

Waiting: Keep the crock in an area where the temperature is about 68 degrees F. Check the contents daily and remove any floating scum. Do this for 7 days.

Then Can: Strain spices out of the brine and boil brine for 5 minutes. Immerse glass mason jars in boiling water for 10 minutes. If using self-sealing lids boil these as well for 5 minutes.

Into hot (now sterilized) jars distribute fresh spices and the cucumbers from the crock. Pour in the hot brine to within 1/2" of jar top.

Wipe jar rim before securing lids.

Process jars in a hot water bath for 5 minutes.

Dill Pickle Shelf Life: Store jars in a cool, dark place and let set for 1 week before opening. Consume within 12 months.
