My hs classmate Will gave me this recipe. It is awesome, not the "bite" of commercial dills. These store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. Guaranteed to stay crunchy the entire 2 months....I cannot vouch for that as I've never had any last 2 months!

How to Make Will's Refrigerator Dill Pickles

Step-by-Step

  • 1Slice onions and garlic thinly, set aside for about 10 minutes to release their curative powers.
  • 2Cut cucumbers into 1/4s.
    ****I peeled and sliced mine, as we like them better that way, than spears.
    ***I also scooped the seeds out. My cucumbers were really the eating kind, not the pickling kind and the seeds were huge!
  • 3Combine the cucumbers, garlic and onions in a large bowl or pot. Set aside.
    ***You may use EITHER the fresh or dried dill, but not both.
    ***I use a combo of the dried dill weed and dried dill seed.
  • 4***I use Nursery (baby) Water it is better for pickling than our city water.
    In a large pot combine the water, vinegar, sugar and pickling salt. Bring to a boil.
  • 5Pour the brine over the cucumber mixture.
    Cool, and refrigerate.
  • 6These will keep in the frige for 2 months. I divided mine up into qts and pints....I got a total of 6 qts. So it will yield approx 1.5 gal of pickles.
  • 7My niece and her grandkids are eating these by the gal....they love them and they are not too bitey for the little ones. My brother-in-law keeps asking when he can get more.......This is a winner!
