    Bergy's Note:

    This is my mother's recipe with a few adaptations by me. They are wonderful crisp white, sweet pickles that go well with anything You nearly always see this pickle on Danish open faced liver pate sandwiches. If you cut them in spears they pack really well in the jars. It is more traditional to cut them across in 1/2" slices..

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    Divide into each of the 8 jars before packing

    • 8 hot pepper, 1 each (optional)
    • 8 teaspoons mustard seeds, 1 tsp each
    • 8 small bay leaves, 1 each
    • 4 teaspoons dill seeds, 1/2 tsp each
    • 80 whole white peppercorns, 10 each


    1. 1
      Sterilize 8 pint jars.
    2. 2
      Make syrup by, putting the sugar, vinegar and water in a large pot, stirring until the sugar dissolves, and bring to a boil, when you fill jars have it at a full boil.
    3. 3
      Peel the cucumbers, cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.
    4. 4
      Cut cucumbers into1/2 " spears that are about 3/4 " shorter than the pint jar, thus allowing some headroom. As you are cutting up the cukes put the prepared ones in ice-water until you put them into the jars Pack jars tightly with the spears standing upright( spears go on top of the spices already in the jar).
    5. 5
      Fill jars with boiling vinegar/syrup , make sure the jar's edges are clean with no vinegar/syrup on them. Place a lid on and screw on the ring.
    6. 6
      Check that they have popped.
    7. 7
      Leave for at least 2 weeks & enjoy.

      These are great pickles with a very nice bite!! I did not make them but was given a bottle by my friend. Delicious!! and enjoyed by all at Easter weekend, I put them out with some appetizers and they were gone in less than 10 minutes. Thanks Bergy for a real treat!! These pickles really are outstanding!! Very very crisp, thanks Bergy!!

      I've been making these for years and am sorry to realize I never reviewed. These are excellent - mildy sweet and have a nice crunch. I slice my peeled cukes into coins and leave out the hot pepper in a few jars for my dad. People are curious and unsure of their different appearance, but one bite and they're in love.

      These were easy to make! I had several cucumbers and was looking for recipes to try, glad I found this one. I didn't have a hot pepper for each jar, so I used red pepper flakes. Sweet AND hot. I'll be making these again next year.
