How to Make Claussen CopyKat Pickles

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare your jars by making sure they are clean and placing equal amounts of spices; pickling salt, peppercorns, turmeric, chili peppers, sugar, smashed garlic, onion, dill, alum/pickle crisp, and mustard seed in each jar.
  2. In a pot, heat your water and vinegar. While it's heating, clean and slice cucumbers in quarters if desired. Once the salt water brine is boiling, add 1/2 c. brine to each of the jars. Let stand 30 min.
  3. Place cucumbers in the jars. After brine has cooled, add brine to jars; insure cukes are completely covered with brine. Place the lid on top. Let sit on the counter for 3 days, shaking occasionally. Place in the fridge for up to 6 months.
