I love them!!
I went to the farmers market and bought a 5lb bag of dilling cucumbers and a couple big bunches of dill. Then I got some canning jars from Canadian Tire and went to town!
What you need,
Dilling cucumbers (I used a 5lb bag)Dill
Garlic (about 3 cloves per jar)
Start by washing all of those little cucumbers, fun stuff!
Stuff each jar with as many cucumbers as you can get in, a couple big sprigs of dill and about 3 cloves of garlic.
For the brine,
This recipe is enough for about 3 quarts. I tripled it, I had 7 quarts.
¼ cup pickling salt
2 cups white vinegar
3 cups water
Boil all the ingredients together in a large pot.
Pour the hot brine into each jar until it they are right full, to the very brim.Put the lids on very tightly.
The jars will seal within a couple hours.
If they don’t seal for some reason you can store the jar in the fridge, they will be fine.
Now the hard part, you have wait to open a jar until Christmas! They need time to pickle! Dad says you can open a jar at thanksgiving if you want, but they will be better if you wait!
Now I have the canning bug, I want to do more! Any ideas what I should try??
