What's Cookin' Wednesday ~ Homemade Pickles!

Crisp Cuke Pickle
For about 4-5 mason jars

About 20 Kirby cucumbers, speared – NOT peeled
Fresh Dill
Fresh Garlic (about 2 heads)
For the brine:
1 cup of white vinegar
½ cup of sugar
½ cup of salt
2 quarts of water

Boil all of the brine ingredients together (vinegar, sugar, salt, water) let cool completely.
Spear the cucumbers and place them in the mason jars.
Add 3-5 cloves of garlic to each jar.
Add the dill - I did a good clump per jar
Add the cooled brine
Close the jars & refrigerate right away
Pickles are ready in 2-3 days!
These were very yummy!!
I did a few variations with them as well.
If you like spicy, you can add jalapenos or red crushed pepper
(I did both, and both were great!)
These are great for the summer for all those BBQs!
