This is the exact recipe that my grandmother made when I was growing up. We loved them so much that one summer she made over 100 quarts for us (yes, 100 quarts all from this recipe). Now I make them for my family, and we love them. *Tip: my grandmother used to throw several towels and the cukes in the washing machine on the delicate cycle. They come out perfectly clean and unbruised. Much easier than washing them by hand.

These pickle are great. A friend's daughter, 16, is a pickle lover I am always buying her those huge pickles out of the jar, she loves these. Only thing I did different was to add red pepper flakes for a little zip, will definately make these again.

We made this recipe with Wal-Mart generic vinegar, used fresh dill (2 sprigs per jar), and the chopped garlic in a jar (can be found in most produce sections.) The pickles made my hubby happy, and he's a huge garlic critic. Would higly recommend this recipe.

This was my first attempt at making pickles. I cut the recipe in half and ended up with 3 quarts. The first I made exactly according to the recipe, the second I made with a few shakes of crushed red pepper and minced garlic instead of a whole garlic clove, and the third I added a roasted red pepper to. They all turned out great with our favorite being the second jar with the crushed red pepper. We liked the spice, but agree with some other reviews saying that there is a bit too much salt! I will definitely be using this recipe again. Thank you!

made 4 qts. Way too salty, think it should only be 1/2 cup salt.

I made these 2 months ago, but have just opened our first jar.These were the best dill pickles we have ever had. I made dill slices using your recipe, and DH said it was the best hamburger he had eaten because of them.

These were my first attempt at dill pickles and they turned out great plus I did not use pickling cukes. I have since made 4 more pints and waiting for them to mature.

hmmm I haven't tried this recipe yet, but am wondering how it would do with other vegetables, like green beans or asparagus. I do like those vegetables pickled! Any thoughts?
