Midwest Old Threshers has a great festival in Mt. Pleasant Iowa every year running through Labor Day. I always bought interesting cookbooks there and ran across the request in one of my books!


  1. Put 1 head of dill (or more) and 1 clove garlic in each quart jar.
  2. Or use 1 gallon jar with 5 heads dill and 4 garlic cloves.
  3. Add cucumbers whole or sliced, to jar.
  4. Pour boiling solution over cucumbers in jar.
  5. Let stand overnight at room temperature.
  6. Next morning put lids on jars and put in refrigerator.
  7. Keeps all winter.
  8. Solution is exactly enough for 1 gallon jar.

This was a very easy recipe to make. We tried them the next morning before putting in the frig & they were very good. I did increase the salt to 3 tbls & I added 1 tbls spoon of sugar to the brine but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly.
