Quick and Easy Pickles


6 qts. sliced cucumbers
1 Tbsp Dill
2 cloves crushed garlic
2 Tbsp salt
1 tsp. sugar
6 cups vinegar
6 cups water


The spices are listed per jar. You can add more or less garlic as per your taste. Pack cucumbers in clean jars. Add spices as listed. Pour water and vinegar in a pot and bring to a boil. While waiting for that get your lids and rings ready. As you pour the hot vinegar mix over the cucumbers make sure you shake the jar a little to dislodge air bubbles. Clean rims, put lids on and turn upside down for 30 minutes. This should seal the lids. Allow to sit for at least a week before eating. Chill overnight before eating.

you can use the same recipe

you can use the same recipe only don't heat the vinegar mixture and sit them out in the sunshine. Shake 2 times a day and after the 4 or 5th day try them. These have to be refrigerated but are so good.
