Whole spicy dill pickles. Gram E’s notes are that she likes these pickles because they are crisp - (and sassy too!) she also likes to use longer thinner cucumbers that do not require cutting into chunks to preserve their crispiness. She also used quarts instead of pint jars to allow less cutting of cucumbers
I have not made this recipe so not sure on how many pints this will make. Probably close to 6-8 pints depending on pickle size
1. Wash cucumbers. Leave the smaller ones whole or chunk the larger ones.
2. Pack them into clean, sterilized quart jars. To each jar at 6 cloves, garlic, a head of dill, 1/2 of a red hot pepper or 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
3. Make the brine: put the vinegar, water, and salt in a sauce pan and heat to boiling point. Pour over the cucumber jars. Seal and place in a water bath that is barely simmering, not boiling, for five minutes. If you leave them in longer than 5 minutes they will become soft, so mark your start time to ensure maximum crispiness.
4. Let cool thoroughly and store in a cool dark place for several weeks. (Or in Gram E’s case…. Several years)
