Number Of Ingredients: 7


  • 11 cups water
  • 5 cups white vinegar
  • 1 cup canning salt
  • 12 pounds pickling cucumbers, quartered or halved lengthwise
  • 9 dill sprigs or heads
  • 18 garlic cloves
  • 18 dried hot chilies


These pickles taste so fresh and have just the right amount of dill and garlic. They taste great along-side a hotdog on a bun. They also taste great alone as a healthy snack. The pickles should be good for 6 weeks. Enjoy! You can also cut cucumbers into chips if you prefer a pickle chip instead of a spear.

Number Of Ingredients: 7


  • 3 ½ cups water
  • 1 ¼ cups white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 4 cups cucumber spears
  • 2 cloves garlic, whole
  • 2 heads fresh dill


Using only a handful of pantry ingredients, a Mason jar, and a few hours in the refrigerator, you can make classic dill pickles that are just as tangy and flavorful as those prepared according to more traditional (and labor-intensive) canning techniques. Plus this recipe can be scaled with ease, meaning you can make just one jar or ten in a matter of minutes. So if you're a pickle lover but short on time, this method is for you.

Yield 1 quart


  • Bring the vinegar, 1 1/2 cups water and 1 tablespoon salt to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the salt is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • Meanwhile, place the peppercorns, red pepper flakes, dill and garlic in a 1-quart Mason (or other glass) jar. Pack the cucumbers in the jar as tightly as possible.
  • Pour the vinegar mixture over the cucumbers so the cucumbers are completely submerged. Leave uncovered and allow to cool to room temperature, about 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 day before using. The pickles will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Number Of Ingredients: 7


  • 1 cup rice wine vinegar or distilled white vinegar
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 6 sprigs dill
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/4 pounds kirby cucumbers, ends trimmed (about 4 medium cucumbers; see Cook's Note)


When canning any vegetable it is highly recommended that you hot water bath them. Pickles should be boiled in the jars for ten full minutes. If you add more water to the pot, wait until boil starts again to resume timing.

  • 4 dozen pickling cucumbers (Pickling cucumbers are cucumbers that are not less than 3-inches long and not more than 4-inches)

A good friend gave me this recipe many years ago after I munched down nearly a quart while visiting! I threw out ALL my other dill pickle recipes because THIS ONE is the best. Several years ago, it occurred to me to enter my pickles in the County Fair. So I did. Since I'm superintendent over in the Junior Foods & Nutrition Department, I don't get to watch the Open Class judging. So later in the day (after judging in both classes was over), I went to see how my pickles (and other canned goods) fared [pun intended!]. I couldn't find my jar of pickles. They weren't on any of the shelves, neither were they in with the "disqualified" items. Hmmm. Then I spied them! Not only did they have a big blue ribbon on them, but they also received Best of Show AND the canning award! What a thrill!!! There's nothing like winning at the fair--amongst all those good cooks--to feel validated as a successful home-canner. NOTE: I did NOT list an amount for the cucumbers since I've never measured how many pounds I use--sorry! SERVING SIZE is the number of ounces in a quart jar--to facilitate nutritional information.

Time 1h30m

Yield 7 quart jars, 32 serving(s)


  • Wash 7 quart jars in hot, soapy water (or dishwasher), rinse and fill with hot water; set aside.
  • Fill canning kettle half-full with hottest tap water; set on burner over high heat.
  • In a medium saucepan, fit lids and rings together, cover with water, bring to a simmer.
  • In a large saucepan, bring water, vinegar and salt to boil; turn off the heat; set aside.
  • FILL JARS: place a layer of dill at the bottom of each jar, along with one garlic clove (if used), then TIGHTLY load the cukes into the jar to the NECK of the jar (depending on size you may get two nice layers with a few small cukes in the top--)---squeeze cukes into the jar tightly--uniform size helps; add a few TINY spriglets of dill at the top, too, and another garlic clove if desired.
  • Once jars are loaded, pour in the brine leaving half-inch head space in each jar.
  • Add lid and ring to each jar, tightening evenly.
  • Place jars into canner with water JUST to the necks of the jars.
  • Bring water ALMOST to a boil (about 15 minutes--depending on how fast it heats up).
  • Remove jars, set on a dish towel on the kitchen counter, cover with another dish towel & let cool.
  • Check for seal (indented lid), label jars or lids, store in cool dark cellar or cupboard.
  • NOTES: When washing/scrubbing cukes, sort them into piles by size. This really helps make your jars look nicer, if you have uniform sizes (and this impresses the judges too!). And makes for easier packing, too.
