Gramma Dippolds Dill Pickles

Dina Dippold


I've been eating these since i as a little girl.Now that Gramma has passed it's my job to now make the pickles,which i love doing.We grow the cukes every year they go crazy sometimes and climb up the fence almost to the roof if we don't catch them in time.

1 Hr


1 Hr


4-5 qt
canning jars
50 small
pickling cucumbers
heads (the flowering parts)you can also use 1/2 teaspoon dillweed if that's all you have
5 clove
garlic peeled
1 1/4 tsp
4 c
1 c
apple cider vinegar
1/4 c
plain salt (not iodized)
1 tsp
picking spice per jar

Directions Step-By-Step

To each jar add 1 clove garlic,the dill,1/4 teaspoon alum.Pack the scrubbed cukes into each jar as many as possible,if you'd like you may also cut the cukes into spears or chunks.
Add the water,salt,and vinegar to a sauce pan bring to a boil.
While this is boiling place the canning jar seals in a small pan of simmering water.They have to be wet to seal the jars.
Ladle the brine mixture into the quart jars,right to the very top. Place seal on top of jar and seal with the ring.Place on a dishtowel,let cool no processing needed.
If you have cukes leftover just make another batch,i usually triple this recipe.The fronds can also be used i use all the dill parts.It's just the flowers look so much prettier.
