    kaytee533's Note:

    If you can boil water, you can make these. Just five ingredients and a warm, sunny spot will help you produce great crunchy dill pickles in just 3 days. The "secret" ingredient is bread!

      These were excellent. My grandson loved them. I left them out 21/2 days but it wasn't very sunny the last day and they should have stayed a bit longer. I used kosher salt, garlic, and peppercorns. Easy and delicious!
