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.

Step-by-Step

  • 1To 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.
  • 2Add the water,salt,and vinegar to a sauce pan bring to a boil.
  • 3While this is boiling place the canning jar seals in a small pan of simmering water.They have to be wet to seal the jars.
  • 4Ladle 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.
