Dill Pickles


8 pounds 4-inch pickling cucumbers
48 black peppercorns

2 garlic bulbs, cloves peeled and chopped

12 small dried chili peppers (optional)

12 dill heads with fronds

5 1/2 cups cider vinegar, white wine vinegar or distilled white vinegar

6 cups water

1/2 cup pickling salt


Gently wash the cucumbers and remove the blossom end.  Halve or quarter the cucumbers lengthwise or if you like, leave them whole.  Divide the peppercorns (8), garlic cloves (1-2), and chili peppers (1-2 if using them) into 12 pint or 6 quart mason jars.  Pack equal portions of the cucumbers,dill heads and fronds in each jar.

In a nonreactive (preferably stainless steel) saucepan bring the vinegar, water and salt to a boil, stirring to dissolve the salt.  Pour liquid over cucumbers, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.  Close the jar with hot two-piece caps.

In a boiling water bath, process pint jars for 10 minutes, quart jars for 15 minutes.  Or pasteurize the jars for 30 minutes in water heated to 180-185 degrees.

Store the cooled jars in a cool, dry, dark place for at least one month before eating pickles.
