Prep. Time: 0:35
Serves: varies

1/2 cup kosher salt
1 cup distilled white vinegar
4 1/4 cups water
fresh pickling cucumbers - sliced, quartered, OR whole
4-6 cloves (per jar) garlic - peeled, chopped
1 head (per jar) fresh dill - whole OR chopped
1/4 cup (per jar) sliced banana peppers - optional

Ingredients at Firehouse Pantry

-Stir together salt, vinegar, and water until salt is dissolved; set aside.
-Tightly pack 1 qt. wide-mouth jars with cucumbers.
-Wedge garlic, dill, peppers, and peppercorns between cucumbers.
-Pour brine mixture into jar, leaving 1/4" space at the top.
-Cover tightly with lids.
-Place covered jars upright in a large pot, making sure not to stack them.
-Fill pot with enough water to cover jars and bring to a boil.
-Boil for 5 minutes, them remove pot from heat, placing it in the sink.
-Slowly run cool water into the pot. Doing this too quickly can make the jars crack.

Notes: Pickles will be ready to eat in 24 hours and are best if served chilled.

  • Thank you for making your recipes available. I have just canned my first batch of dill pickles. They turned out great and it was sooo much easier than I had envisioned. Thanks to you, now the silly apprehension has gone. Hopefully now I can move on to other types of canning. Maybe even my Grandmother's family famous apple-butter. Thank you again for the inspiration.

  • Robbie: great dill pickles recipe.
