    C & D's Mommy's Note:

    Dill pickles at their best!! This recipe can be used for whole pickles, wedges or slices. I make some of each. I make these every year, and never have enough cuz my friends keep taking the jars home!! I usually have to double the recipe as I have lots of jars.

    Brine

    Pickles

    • 20 fresh picked pickling cucumbers (more or less, depending on how many jars you have, the pickles are best if they are right off the vi)
    • 2 whole heads of garlic, peeled, and chopped coarsely
    • 1 -2 cup fresh dill (seeds, leaves whatever)
    • 1 cup sliced hot pepper (I NEVER put peppers in my pickles!! But, some people like em!) (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Wash the cucumbers thoroughly. Scrub them with a brush! (there's nothing fun about gritty pickles) Dissovle the salt in the water and vinegar brine.
    2. 2
      Place in the bottom of a VERY CLEAN mason jar:.
    3. 3
      the equivalent of about 4 cloves of the chopped garlic (some people like to put the clove in whole, whatever is your preference) I like mine really garlicky, so I put more than 4 cloves.
    4. 4
      2 tablespoons of the dill.
    5. 5
      1/8-1/4 cup peppers (if that's your cup of tea).
    6. 6
      Pack the cucumbers in the jars as tighly as you can.
    7. 7
      Add enough brine so it's within 1/4 inch from the top of the jar. On a padded surface such as a tea towel folded up, bang the jar a few times to get rid of any air bubbles around your pickles.
    8. 8
      Close the cap tightly and place the jars upright into a large pot. Only single layers, don't stack them! And also, don't submerge them.
    9. 9
      Fill the pot with enough water so that the jar tops are just above the water line.
    10. 10
      Bring to a slow boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
    11. 11
      Once the lid of the jar snaps down with a pop, you can loosen off the ring, but you don't have to. Once the jars are cool, store them in a cool dark place. Put at least one jar in the fridge right away so you can start enjoying them in a few days. I can never wait longer than about 3 days!
