Who doesn't love pickles? Recently, Darrick and I were given some freshly grown cucumbers from a co-worker. Not wanting them to go bad, we decided to make pickles, I can remember my grandmother canning pickles and I enjoyed eating anything she made. I think I could taste the love.
What you will need:
This recipe makes 4 quart jars
4 large cucumbers
2 cups water
1 cups white vinegar
2 tbsp. canning salt
1/4 tsp. of dill seed per quart jar
1/4 tsp. of minced garlic per quart jar
Step 1 - Get your jars and lids boiling to sterilize
Step 2 - Prepare your brine by combining the canning salts, water and vinegar.
Step 3 - Cut up your cucumbers, cut them in spears and slices.
Step 4 - Add the dill and garlic seasonings to the bottom of each jar, add cucumbers and fill with brine to about 1/2 inch from the bottom of the lid
Step 5 - Place the jars back in the water bath for 10 min, then remove the jars to cool and ensure the seal is made by depressing the lid.
