Aunt Elizabeth’s Fresh Dills


Scale

Ingredients

1 cup pickling vinegar
¼ cup pickling or kosher salt
4 stalks Fresh Pickling Dill
6 Garlic Cloves, peeled

2 Tbsp. Pickling Spice
3 dried Red Chilis
Enough Pickling Cucumbers to fit


Instructions

To make the brine, bring to a boil:

6 cups water
1 cup pickling vinegar
¼ cup pickling or kosher salt
Allow to cool slightly before pouring over pickles.

Layer in a 4L jar or container (ideally an ice cream bucket!)
4 stalks Fresh Pickling Dill, folded accordion style to fit
6 Garlic Cloves, peeled
2 Tbsp. Pickling Spice
3 dried Red Chilis, broken in half to release the seeds
Enough Pickling Cucumbers to fit, 3-4 inches long, both ends trimmed

Pour hot brine over cucumbers, allow to cool and store in the fridge.  If possible, wait a few days before you start enjoying them. Keeps for about 2 months, if they last that long!
