    Advertisement
  • Tie pickling spices in a square of cheesecloth, creating a spice bag.

  • Combine vinegar, water, sugar, pickling salt and spice bag in a medium stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar and salt. Reduce heat and boil gently for 15 minutes, until spices have infused the liquid.

  • Place 1 bay leaf, 1 garlic clove, 1/2 tsp mustard seeds and 1 head of dill into each jar. Pack cucumber slices into hot jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Add rounded 1/8 tsp Pickle Crisp® Granulates. Ladle hot pickling liquid into jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles; re-measure headspace. If needed, add more cucumbers to meet recommended headspace. Wipe rim; center lid on jar. Screw band until fingertip-tight.

  • Process filled jars in boiling water for 15 minutes. Remove stockpot lid. Wait 5 minutes, then remove jars, cool and store.

these are good if you take out the sugar. I made mine with a little kick and added red pepper flakes to 2 jars and left out the sugar for the other jars this is the classic dill pickles slice recipe that will stay in my recipe box.. if you like the sweetness keep it in or just try it in one or two jar I don't care for the sweet so I kept it out... thanks for sharing your recipe....

These had good flavor but too sweet to be good on hamburgers. I think that I will take these and make sweet relish out them. It will taste good on hot dogs. Read More

I made these when my garden was overflowing with cucumbers. I have been in search of a good sliced dill recipe for sometime. These were easy to make. I just opened my first jar yesterday when we grilled hamburgers. Contrary to the first review, we did not find these too sweet for our burgers at all. They are tasty! I will definitely be keeping this recipe. Read More

My husband made this recipe for the first time. He is new to pickling/canning but swears he followed the recipe to a "T" except he used a different brand of pickling salt Morton All Natural Canning and Pickling Salt (already had it on hand so why buy more?). The pickles turned out WAY too salty for everyone's liking. It's a shame because we have a lot of pickles that probably won't get eaten. This seems to be the only negative review on this recipe so I'm willing to consider that maybe something he did or didn't do had an affect on the outcome. Any input from other users of this recipe would be greatly appreciated. Read More
