DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and scrub cucumbers. Trim stem and blossom end. Leave small cucumbers whole, or slice into spears or sandwich slices as desired. All cucumbers in a jar should be similar in size and thickness.
  • Add seasonings, except salt, to 1 pint wide mouthed jar. Pack firmly with cucumbers, leaving a 1/2" headspace.
  • Combine vinegar, water, and salt in a small sauce pan. Heat until boiling. Ladle into jar to cover cucumbers - again, leave a 1/2" headspace.
  • Seal jar with sterilized two piece cap, and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes (15 minutes for quarts).
  • Wait 4-6 weeks before tasting to allow pickles to cure. Refrigerate after opening.
  • (I laid out the recipe for a single pint of pickles to make the spices easier to list - you will want to scale this up to make a canner full).
