Doris Laska and her husband, Ben, recently retired from a 200-acre dairy farm that their son now runs. Doris has a 1-½-acre garden and a roadside vegetable stand. Each year, she cans 100 quarts of vegetables and fruits, 50 jars of jams and jellies, and 50 jars of pickles.

Ingredients

20 midget cucumbers (or larger cucumbers, sliced)
2 heads fresh dill
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1-1/2 tablespoons canning salt

Instructions

Cut the blossom ends off the cucumbers and leave a bit of the stem if it is there. (Do not peel.) Place 1 head of dill in a sterilized quart jar and pack with cucumbers. Add the vinegar, salt, and enough water to cover the cucumbers. Place another head of dill on top and seal. Process in a boiling-water bath for 10 to 15 minutes.
