I also made these easy pickles today. http://thesavoryspoonful.com/?p=651 Will post in a couple days how the taste, but I’m guessing from the look and smell they are going to be EXCELLENT!
On a side note, I am a much better cook, than photographer or pickle packer…haha.
3-4 Pickling Cucumbers sliced in half or quartered
5 Fresh Dill Sprigs
3-4 Clove Garlic crushed
1/2 Cup Distilled White Vinegar
1 1/4 Cup Water
1 Tbs Salt
1/2 Tsp Sugar
1/2 Tsp Dill Seed
1/2 Tsp Mustard Seed
1/2 Tsp Coriander Seed
1/2 Tsp Hot Pepper Flakes
1/2 Tsp Celery Seed
1 Tsp Peppercorns
1 Quart Canning Jar
Mix water, vinegar, salt and sugar together in a pourable container until salt and sugar are dissolved. Arrange Dill sprigs and cucumbers in 1 quart canning jar, then drop in garlic cloves, sprinkle spices into jar, add liquid the water and vinegar mixture until jar is filled to rim. Put the lid on the jar and give it all a good shake. Refrigerate. Give it a taste test after 24 hours. If there are any left after 48 hours give them another taste, they will continue to pickle as they lay in waiting in the frig.
These pickles should be safe in the refrigerator for up to a month. If you dont eat them all in the first day!
