Spicy Dill Pickles

By August 11, 2012

I am not a huge fan of homemade pickles but my Son LOVES them and eats a pint a week, so I make pickles. This recipe is what I have made the past couple years and it is my favorite so far. The pickles don't get as mushy as other recipes I have used.

  • Prep Time : 5 minutes
  • Cook Time : 10 minutes



  • While you heat your jars wash and cut your cucumbers into spears, I only half some or leave the smallest whole, depending on the size. The bigger the pieces the crunchier they will be in the end.
  • In a pan heat to a boil the water, vinegar and pickle mix.
  • In your warm clean jars place 1 small piece of dill weed about 3 inches long, 1 pepper, and 2 garlic cloves in the bottom of your jar then PACK your cucumbers in AS TIGHTLY as you can.
  • Once you can fit nothing else in the jar fill the jar with the hot liquid leaving at least 1/2 inch of head space at the top of your jar, and put the lids and rings on the jars.
  • Process in a WATER BATH for 5 mins for pints, 7 for quarts.
