Dill Pickle Recipe that is good!

           Dill Pickle Recipe:

  1. For whole cucumbers, small sizes up to 4 inches long are preferred. Larger sizes may be packed whole provided they are processed for a longer time. Wash cucumbers thoroughly.

  2. Usually with larger cucumbers it is better to slice, quarter, or halve lengthwise before pickling. Combine vinegar and water. Pack cucumbers into clean jars. For each quart, add 1 tablespoon or three heads of dill, 5 whole black peppers, and 2 teaspoons salt. Fill with vinegar-water solution to ½ inch of top.

  3. Seal. Process 15 minutes in simmering hot water.
