  1. Combine water, vinegar, and salt in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until salt is dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack cucumbers, dill, and garlic into hot, sterilized jars; top with vinegar mixture, filling to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a knife or thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids and screw on rings.
  3. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars into the boiling water using a holder. Leave a 2-inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary to bring the water level to at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a rolling boil, cover the pot, and process for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area for at least 1 month.

This is the best kosher dill recipe I've tried yet. However, processing for 15 minutes tends to make the slices a little mushy. I prefer my pickles crunchy. Trying a shorter processing time, or ...

I have tried multiple recipes and this is my favorite! I will make these over and over!

Good crunchy pickels. Needed a bit of sugar added.
