Dill Pickles

  • 4 dozen fresh, crisp, pickling cucumbers – DO NOT use the commercial, waxed kind!
  • Fresh dill, to taste (approx. 1- bundle)
  • 1 qt. Apple cider vinegar
  • 8 c. water
  • 1 c. salt
  • 10 whole garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2-4 garlic cloves, peeled, and crushed
  • Several Jars

Wash cukes and cover with cold water. Refrigerate overnight. Pack cukes into jars, tightly. Stuff equal amounts of dill into each jar. Meanwhile, bring remaining ingredients to a boil. Boil for 2 min. Evenly divide whole garlic cloves into jars. Pour hot brine into the jars. Seal. Makes 12 pints. After processing and cooling, jars should be stored 4 to 5 weeks to develop ideal flavor.
