    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I make these every year when my pickling cucumbers are ready in my garden, they are really great pickles and so easy to make, add in more garlic and adjust the dill if desired --- these pickles develop in flavor with refrigeration time so allow them to chill at least 7 days or even longer before using, the longer the better, the pickles will keep for months in the refrigerator, use only kosher salt for this not table salt, and make certain to wash the outsides of the cucumbers thoroughly, see note on bottom --- for soaking the pickles in firstly to remove bacteria see my Homemade Vegetable Wash/Preserver That Works! (Spray or Soak)

    1. 1
      Clean the glass jar and lid thoroughly in your dishwasher or with hot soapy water.
    2. 2
      Combine the water, salt and vinegar in a saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Remove from heat; cool to room temperature.
    4. 4
      Pack the cucumbers and the remaining ingredients in a 2-quart (2 litre) glass jar, and pour brine (water/vinegar mixture) over them, covering the cucumbers completely.
    5. 5
      Store, covered in the the refrigerator.
    6. 6
      The pickles will be ready in 7 days, but the longer you leave them in the refrigerator the better they will be and will keep refrigerated for months (if they last that long!).
    7. 7
      **NOTE** since the peel is eaten on these pickles, make certain to wash and scrub the outside of the cucumbers well to remove any dirt, I use a small nail brush to scrub the outsides.

      YUM!! I messed up and didn't let the brine cool before pouring over cucumbers... but it didn't hurt them at all! They are so crunchy and good!! I'm a pickle snob (very picky) and I love these! Thanks for the easy, tasty recipe! Update: I'm finally coming to the end of that first batch that I reviewed almost 2 months ago. They are still crunchy and tasty... they taste very close to Claussens only better... crunchier! And the garlic flavor is awesome!

      I have to go along with many of the other reviewers. I doubled the vinegar in these and added a tblsp. pickling spice. They were SO good! So good, in fact, that I then made MANY more jars. I even did fresh green beans. (My sons favorite) I did find that the whole cucumbers took just too long to taste pickled, so all the extra jars were done with slices and spears. I added a pepper to some, nice flavor. I think the basic recipe is fabulous for experimenting. Thank you so much for posting!

      I wish I could give a non-rated review, because quite frankly, I altered my first try with this recipe based on the water/vinegar ratio, which I also felt was way off. After some research, I opted for 2 quarts of water, and used 2 1/2 cups of white vinegar. I didn't chop my dill as well as I should have, but used 3 heads in each quart jar, plus chopped fresh, plus a small tsp of dried dill. The only other thing I added was a 1/2 tsp of turmeric to each jar. This recipe then made 3 quarts. One quart I made thick sliced coins, one quart spears, and one whole pickles. I liked the coins the best. With altering the water/vinegar, I would give the recipe 4.5 stars!
