    Default Jar Gift: Easy Dill Pickles

    DILL PICKLES

    30 sm. cucumbers
    1/2 c. coarse salt
    2 qt. water
    2 tbsp. vinegar
    4 to 8 cloves garlic
    4 bay leaves
    1/4 tsp. mustard seed
    1 tsp. mixed pickling spice
    10 sprigs fresh dill

    Wash and dry very firm, evenly sized cucumbers. Arrange in a crock or jar.
    Bring the salt and water to a boil. Cool; then add the vinegar, garlic, bay

    leaves, mustard seed and pickling spice. Pour over the cucumbers. Arrange
    the dill over all. The liquid should completely cover the cucumbers; if not,
    add more salted water.

    If crock is used, cover with a plate or wooden board to weigh it down.
    Loosely cover with cheesecloth. Keep in cool place for 1 week.

    I buy a big plastic container of kosher dill by vlassic, my favorite, when those are all gone, I keep the juice, I slice up a couple of cucumbers in the pickle juice and leave them in it for 4 days, and we have a whole new batch of pickles for cheap!!
