Garden pickles

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 quart Vinegar
12 To 14 cucumbers; sliced
1 quart Water
½ cup Canning salt or table salt
Sprig dill
3 Cloves garlic
Shake mustard seed

Very simple recipe. Mix salt, vinegar and water together. I nuke mine for about 20 minutes in the microwave (making sure to stir the salt in) while I'm cutting slices. Put a sprig of dill and a couple of garlic cloves in along with a shake of mustard seed or whatever type of spices you perfer in your clean, water bathed jar. If packed tight makes enough juice for about 4 quarts or 8 pints. Water bath for about 10 minutes.

water bath. They're good for about 2 months. They are also crisper. This is an

approved Ball method and measurements for refridgerated pickles.
