Grandpa's Summertime Pickles ♥

Here is my grandpa's recipe for summertime pickles he always used to make after my grandparents would get back from the "Bazaar" as they called it (Farmer's Market) with a ton of fresh garlic, dill stalks and of course small cucumbers!




Ingredients ♥ 


  • 12 pickling cucumbers

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 3/4 cups distilled white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups packed coarsely chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 8 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coarse salt
  • 1 tablespoon pickling spice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dill seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

  • Directions 
    Combine all ingredients except dill sprigs in large bowl. Stir, let stand at room temperature 2 hours until sugar and salt dissolve.

    Transfer 4 cucumbers to each of three 1 1/2-pint wide-mouth jars. Pour pickling mixture over to cover. Place a few dill sprigs in each jar. Cover jars with lids and close tightly. Refrigerate at least 10 days. Pickles will stay fresh for up to 1 month. Keep refrigerated. enjoy! ♥
