Author: 
Serves: 6 pints
 
Ingredients
  • About 12 cucumbers
  • Per jar:
  • 1 Dill Flower (a full, big one)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder or 1 minced clove of fresh garlic
  • Liquid mixture for 6 pint jars:
  • 2¼ cups white vinegar
  • 2¼ cups water
  • 3 Tablespoons sea salt
Instructions
  1. Wash and sterilize 6 pint-sized jars.
  2. Place the following into the bottom of each prepared jar:
  3. Dill Flower (a full, big one) plus ½ teaspoon garlic powder or 1 minced clove of fresh garlic
  4. Wash 12-ish medium-sized cucumbers, then cut them into spears or slices. Pack them into each jar. (I averaged about 2 cucumbers per pint jar.)
  5. Stir the vinegar, water, and sea salt together on the stove over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until the salt dissolves. (Do not boil the mixture.)
  6. Pour the hot liquids into each jar, immersing the cucumbers, allowing ½ inch of space at the top.
  7. Secure lids and rings, then place in boiling water bath for 5 minutes.
  8. Remove jars and be sure they seal properly.
