Polish Dill Pickles Country Style

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 5 mins

This recipe from a friend's family collection is so unlike most dilling recipes and one we enjoy. Use non - reactive containers and pots. (use stainless steel, unchipped enamel/porcelain - be sure your plastic bowls and containers are food grade) I do not process these pickles but you may do so if you wish. If processing I would recommend a 10 minute boiling water bath.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut cucumbers 4 to an inch.
  2. In sterilized quart jar put in two sprigs of dill and add 2-3 slices of onion.
  3. Fill half full of cucumber slices and add small piece of garlic.
  4. Add 2-3 slices of onion and cucumber slices to fill.
  5. Add another small piece of garlic and 2 sprigs dill.
  6. Mix and bring brine to boiling point, simmer until clear, pour over hot and seal.

GORGEOUS! We LOVE our dill pickles in this house! I made these at the beginning of December to be ready for Christmas and the New Year, and due to that fact, the colour faded a little - sorry about that! HOWEVER, the taste was authentic and amazingl - a VERY good technique for dill pickles, and I make them regularly, so I should know! LOL! I served these throughout the Festive Period with salmon, cold cuts of ham and turkey and cheese.........they have all gone now, and I just had enough left to take a couple of photos today! Made for the 12 Days of Christmas recipe swap - many thanks Gerry! FT:-)
