You need to follow the directions in a recipe Exactly or you end up with Aunt B's kerosene pickle's.Picking your cucumbers at the perfect time is also essential. Overripe large cucumbers make mushy pickles.When slicing and preparing the cucumbers for pickling if you put them on salted ice they will come out much crisper.This is my Grandma's recipe that I've won a few Blue Ribbons with.In the old days you could make this recipe and pour in Hot Jars ,screw the lids on and let them seal when cooling. In this day and age they say you have to go thru the entire canning process to keep them for a extended period or refrigerate them.
1 gallon cucumbers, washed and sliced
8 onions, peeled and sliced in rings
1/2 cup pickling salt
10 trays ice cubes (approx)
4-1/2 cups white sugar
5 cups white vinegar
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp celery seed
Combine cucumbers, onions, salt, and ice. Let sit for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
In a large pot combine white sugar, white vinegar, turmeric, mustard seed, and celery seed. Bring to a boil.
Drain vegetables. Add to brine.
Cook over medium heat until boiling.
Pack into hot sterilized jars


Wrong. You need to watch the Andy Griffith episode where Aunt Bee makes a mess of pickles for the state fair. They're awful and I wager if Aunt Bee can't pull it off you don't have a chance at making a pickle better than "store bought" \:D ;\) .

pickles are easy. But I'm pretty lazy and haven't done it in a couple years. I do have a few unused mason jars, and a few cukes coming in from the garden. Just need to snag some dill from someone as I did not plant any dill this year (a mistake) then I will make cukes with jalapeno, garlic and dill. Best when refrigerated, but I will give a few the water bath to save for later.
