  • Wash cucumbers well with cold water. Trim ends and cut into 1/8-inch thick slices. Place cucumber slices into 4 hot sterilized pint or 8 half-pint canning jars.

  • Mix remaining ingredients in medium saucepan. Bring to boil on medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar and salt. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes.

  • Ladle over cucumbers, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Stir each jar well. Cool. Cover with metal lids and screw on bands.

  • Refrigerate pickles. Shake jars once a day for 3 to 5 days to redistribute seasonings and blend flavors. Store in refrigerator up to 2 months.

    I have been using this recipe for last 5 years. You Can not go wrong using this one. Family and friends wait in line for these pickles. Plus as a added bonus I use the brine to put in my potato, macaroni and Cole slaw. GREAT

    Yes, there is a print option! In the list of little icons for sharing is a printer icon. Just click it and a printable version comes up. Very simple!

    Great pickles. I omitted the dried onions and added slices of fresh Vidalia onion instead.

    NO print option. All recipes should have a printer-friendly print option that will print JUST the ENTIRE recipe with no picutres or large blocks of color or words on solid colored backgrounds. VERY frustrated.
