Dill Pickles

Dill Pickles created by Scooterskitten

I started making my own pickles when I discovered how easy it was to do so. Now I can make them as hot or as mild as I like.

    I love that you use actual spices. Ive seen toooo many pickle recipes that just have salt and white vinegar. Thanks for the recipe and keep curing! :)

    Wow! This recipe made making pickles so easy. Yummy almost-Clausen noms. Like others, I added garlic and peppercorns and cut down on sugar (I used brown sugar instead of white). I also added 1/4 tsp mustard seed, because I saw some in a handy jar of Clausen's. One thing I noticed is that the cucumbers shrank a bit as they became pickles, so it doesn't really hurt if you stuff those quart jars as much as possible.

    Fantastic recipe! Just like you in the beginning, I also cannot believe how easy it is to make gherkins! Yes, I still call them gherkins because I grew up calling them that... pickles to me are pickled onions! These are made weekly in my home and because the turnover is so fast, I don't even bother with a sterilized jar anymore... they go straight into their own tupperware container and into the fridge. In fact, when they start running low, I chuck more cucumbers in on top of the older ones so they never run out of these crispy crunchy beauties.
