My Mom's Dill Pickles
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 cup Kosher salt
  • cucumbers
  • dill
  • garlic cloves, peeled
  • dill seed
  • vinegar
  1. Bring water and salt to a boil and then cool.
  2. Wash and boil jars, lids and rings.
  3. Put cucumbers, garlic, dill and 3 to 5 Tablespoons dill seed in each quart of pickles.
  4. Use two cups of the boiled salt water to 1 cup vinegar and pour on cucumbers, put the lids and rinds on while still hot.
My mother's pickles ruined my taste for store bought pickles. They never come close to the taste of hers.
