Patti's notes for this recipe:
These pickle skewers were so expensive in the store, I thought with my experience in canning it would be something I could tackle. It was easy, canning is a dying art and hopefully will make a comeback due to the economy and "back to basics" effort of the home gardener.

The skewers are great tasting and fun to look at, great conversation starter too!

Directions

1
Scrub pickles, and rinse hot peppers. Cut hot peppers into squares, NOT RINGS. This way you are not using the seeds.
2
Sterilize jar, lids and wash rings.
Hint: I wash, rinse and wipe dry my jars, then place them in a 225 degree oven for 20 minutes to sterilize them. Place the lids in boiling water and hold until use.
3
Take a skewer, in this order place a cucumber, square of hot pepper and then pearl onion.
4
Make brine, of salt, vinegar and water, bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. In the meantime place dill and garlic into jar, pack your skewers into the jar, fitting them as tight as you can get.
5
When brine is ready fill jar to top, carefully jiggle the jar to bring air bubbles to top, adjust brine to cover leaving 1/4 inch from top. Place on lid and band, screw down.
6
If not going to process in a hot water bath, you can leave these sit on the counter for 24 hours and then refrigerate. They should be ready to eat in 2 weeks, or to have as a special treat in your Bloody Mary. If processing, hot bath for 7-10 minutes.
7
This BRINE makes enough to can 6 jars of these skewers, adjust recipe to suit amount.
