Sliced Dill Pickle Recipe


Preserving Method: Water Bath Canning

  1. PREPARE boiling water canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil.  Wash lids in warm soapy water and set bands aside.
  2. TIE pickling spice in a square of cheesecloth, creating a spice bag.
  3. COMBINE vinegar, water, sugar, pickling salt and spice bag in a large stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar and salt. Reduce heat and boil gently for 15 minutes, until spices have infused the liquid.
  4. PLACE 1 bay leaf, 1 garlic clove, 1/2 tsp mustard seeds and 1 head of dill into each jar. Pack cucumber slices into hot jars leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Ladle hot pickling liquid into jar to cover cucumbers leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles and re-measure headspace. If needed, add more pickling liquid to meet recommended headspace. Wipe rim. Center lid on jar. Apply band and adjust until fit is fingertip tight.
  5. PROCESS filled jars in a boiling water canner for 15 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sugar!? I made these hoping to have a great pickle for a family get together. After opening them and trying one BEFORE I presented them, all I tasted was sugar. I used the exact amounts as the recipe stated. I should have known when I read the recipe. My grandmother never used sugar to can pickles. Sweet dills are awful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I appreciated the ease of Ball's recipe The Conversion chart made it easy to adjust the recipe. The amount of sugar was fine...I would add a little more salt and maybe 1/2-1 cup less of vinegar(full batch) and taste it again. Otherwise, great recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife made these to great effect. A real hit all around. Superb taste, good crunch and so much dill ( 1 sprig per 1 pint jar was plenty!).
