Anyone have a good and easy dill pickle recipe to share? I am making pickles every other day and would like to try something new. Thanks! Connie

waveyHi Connie, I don't know if this is what you are looking for.These pickles are very good and don't need to be processed.

Dill-Pickle Chips

Makes 2 quarts
Pickling gives crisp, mellow vegetables spunky personality. These Kirby cucumbers—a small, unwaxed type that"s perfect for pickles—are seasoned with dill and garlic. Salting the cucumbers helps draw out excess water, ensuring crisp results.


2 pounds Kirby cucumbers

3 tablespoons coarse salt

2 cups distilled white vinegar

1 tablespoon dill seed

4 garlic cloves

2 bunches fresh dill, coarsely chopped

1. Cut the cucumbers into 1/2-inch-thick rounds, and transfer to a colander set in a bowl. Toss well with salt. Refrigerate cucumber rounds 1 hour.

2. Rinse cucumber rounds well; drain. Pat dry between paper towels. Transfer cucumber slices to a large bowl.

3. Bring 3 cups water, vinegar, dill seed, and garlic to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring. Reduce heat; simmer 4 minutes. Let mixture cool slightly, about 10 minutes.

4. Add chopped dill to cucumber slices, and toss to combine. Pour in the brine. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes. Transfer mixture to airtight containers, and refrigerate at least 1 week (pickles will keep 3 weeks more).

Kosher Dill (Heinz Recipe)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4 lbs pickling cukes
14 cloves garlic, peeled & split
1/4 cup salt
3 cups distilled or apple cider vinegar 5%acidity
3 cups water
12-14 sprigs fresh dill weed
28 peppercorns


Wash cucumbers; cut in half lengthwise. Combine garlic and next 3 ingredients; heat to boiling. Remove garlic and place 4 halves into each clean jar, then pack cucumbers, adding 2 sprigs of dill and 4 peppercorns. Pour hot vinegar solution over cucumbers to within 1/2 inch of top. Immediately adjust covers as jar manufacturer directs. Process 10 minutes in BWB. Makes 6-7 pints.

I have also used dried dill weed in some and I like them. It just looks a bit messy in the jar with the dill weed settling in the bottom. You can also use dried dill seed.

Thanks! We are still getting cucumbers despite the triple digits for 2 weeks. I will give this one a try! Connie
