I have no idea what I did wrong last time as these turned out very well this time. I did use much larger cucumbers rather than the small Kirbys I used the last time. I added 6 cloves of garlic as well as a large dill blossom along with extra sprigs of dill. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
In a gallon jar! THAT'S what I did wrong, or else I just missed it. I used a quart jar. Now I can't wait until next years cukes come. I will be trying this again. I'm sure they will come out better. I apologize for my previous review as I obviously didn't follow directions.
I have tried every pickle recipe on this site and none are easier or better tasting. I have varied the recipe with hot peppers instead of dill and pickling spices and both get rave reviews. The best pickle recipe ever!
