Ya so it is kinda cheating- BUT these come out so good everytime. Fast, simple and easy. Just don't tell 'em you cheated! They keep for 6 months in the fridge but always disappear faster than that! A family recipe here in TX.

WOW!!! I wanted to try these and am very pleased that I did! I scaled down to a quart size jar - because I wanted to test before going a full gallon. I used fresh dill instead of a typical dill head -- and was happy with the result. I've made dills the tradional way - and honestly, this is far more convenient and quick and most likely will be my new way of doing dills! YUMMY!!!
