Margie’s Dill Pickles

My mother-in-law, Margie, makes the best dill pickles; mainly because she picks the cucumbers when they’re really small.

3 C. water
1/4 C. salt
Cucumbers to fill 2 quart jars
2 garlic bulbs
1/2 C. apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp. alum

  1. Wash and scrub off black points.
  2. Place cucumbers in ice water for 1 hour.
  3. Bring water, vinegar, salt and alum to boiling.
  4. Pack cucumbers in jars, placing dill at bottom, middle and top. Also garlic bulb (1 clove on bottom, 1 in middle and 1 on top).
  5. Place boiling juice over pickles. Put lid on jar.
  6. Set jars in water that has been brought to the boiling point and leave until cool or until the next morning.
