Spicy Garlic Dill Pickles
- Soak cucumbers overnight in cold water. Drain and place into quart-sized sterilized Mason jars so that they are firmly packed but not smashed (Recipe estimate is for 6 cucumbers per jar, but naturally this will vary depending on the size of your cucumbers).
- In large pan, boil vinegar, water and pickling salt.
- Pour over cucumbers in the jars.
- Per jar add 2 or 3 cloves garlic, dill, 1/8 teaspoon alum, and 2 peppers.
- Store in a cool dark place (I use my pantry). Ready in about 30 days.
