I was surprised the other day when I headed to the garden to cut flowers and instead I ended up cutting dill. The surprise came when I found cucumbers large enough to make dill pickles. Canning dill pickles is about as easy as it gets in the world of canning. A brine is made of vinegar, water, and canning salt. Poke clean cucumbers and fresh dill in the jars. Pour brine over the cucumbers and place in a water bath for a few minutes. I also add a red pepper and a clove or two of garlic to my pickles. We like the kick that is provided.
Here are a few jars of my handiwork. Yum...all that is needed is a nice fat sandwich...oh, and a glass of sweet tea!
