For nostalgic reasons, we kept this classic recipe as it ran 30 years ago. Unless you’re experiencing a bumper crop, though, you may want to cut it in half.

6 garlic cloves
1 cup fresh dill flowers
4 quarts (approx.) 3-inch cucumbers or pieces
2 quarts vinegar
1 quart water
2/3 cup salt

Place 1 garlic clove and 1 dill flower into each jar. (Any size jars will do.) Scrub cucumbers and pack into jars. (Cut cukes to fit.) Mix vinegar, water, and salt, and bring to a boil. Pour over cucumbers (leaving headspace) and seal.
