Dill Pickles
/ Cuisine: Canada


Qty unit Ingredient
48 medium
1 bunch
1 quart
8 cups
1 cup
12 cloves


Refrigerate Overnight

If you enjoy garlic, you can add 2 cloves per jar. Just be sure to add the same amount when boiling the brine.

Wash the cucumbers and remove any stems. Place in a large container and cover with cold water. Refrigerate overnight or at least for several hours.

Pack the pickling cucumbers into pint jars as tightly as possible. Place 2 sprigs of dill in each jar.

In a large pot, bring the cider vinegar, water, pickling salt and garlic cloves to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Retrieve the garlic cloves with a slotted spoon and put one in each jar.

Pour the hot brine into the jars and seal. Be sure to label and date your jars. Store in a cool, dark place.

These pickles are ready to eat in about 2 weeks, but the longer they steep in the brine, the tastier they become.
