Jenny Sanders's Note:
Posted in response to a request for dill pickles made without vinegar. This recipe is per quart; make as many quarts as you like. These are excellent, and very easy to make. The hardest part about making pickles is scrubbing the cucumbers, and I'm not kidding. I prefer fairly small pickling cucumbers, and pay a premium to get them. Dump them in a sink, cover with cold water, then start fishing them out and scrubbing them THOROUGHLY with a soft brush. Get every bit of grit and dried-out cucumber blossom off of them, or they will not taste so good. When you have scrubbed every last blessed cucumber, rinse them again. Now you are ready to start - or maybe two-thirds done.
