Thanks to my mother in law for giving me this recipe for making summer dills! These cucumbers I grew from a seed so I am so happy to have my first jar made.
Basically the brine consists of:
* 5 cups of water and
* 2 level Tablespoons of pickling salt
* 2 Tablespoons white vinegar
Boil and cool. recipe can be halved, doubled :D
In a clean jar - place cucumbers, dill ( tops with seeds work best) and garlic. Cover the jar with a tea towel and poor in the brine. Leave in a sunny place (inside or out) for 3 days - then refrigerate. These will keep months ( or until you eat them all) :P
