This recipe came from one of the women that Grandma Deutscher used to clean house for. Very tasty and just a reminder, that you will not make a successful pickle if your home is hooked up to a water softener.

Ingredients

pickling cucumbers
dried red peppers
garlic cloves
alum
1-2
stalks of dill
10 c
water
3/4 c
pickling salt
2 c
apple cider vinegar

Step-By-Step

1Wash and gently scrub the pickling cucumbers

2Using hot sterilized quart jars, put 1-2 heads of dill, 1-2 sliced cloves of garlic and 2-3 dried red peppers in each jar.

3Combine the water, salt and vinegar in pan and bring to a boil. Pour over packed cucumbers in each jar, leaving 1/2 inch head space so that jars will seal correctly.

4Put 1/4 teaspoon of alum in each jar prior to sealing. Process in a hot water bath for 25 minutes.

5**We like to add carrot and celery sticks, and sliced onion in addition to the cucumber.
