I think most of us, at least those of us from the
upper middle part of the country, had the Clausen or
Vlasic dill pickles. So....I been pullin' a few out
of the cucumber patch, just enough for some salads so
far. But, if all the flowers turn to pickles we gonna
have to do somethin' with them.
When we first got married we had a pretty good canning
recipe but danged if I can find it now.
Anyone have a good recipe for dill pickles that taste
anything like those two that I mentioned????

Zucchini and summer squash are growing about and inch
an hour now and we harvested a wheel barrow full last
night. Got a bunch frozen already so we couldn't use
all we're getting and the neighbors are all taken
care of. I loaded up the '50 this morning and to a
bunch into the food pantry. Had to talk truck for a
half hour after unloading. Havin' lots of fun putting
the Stovebolt to work this summer.

Nothing like an old truck to make deliveries with.

Mama always made Bread & Butter Pickles, that dill spice must have been too expensive. I have her recipe here somewhere if'n you want it.

Pickles are something I never developed a taste for. IMHO there's no such thing as a "good" pickle. eek

I love pickles. Unfortunately, mom's recipe is lost since her Altzheimers set in. It's been store bought for me now, but not as good as the homemade stuff...

Denny, here's a pickling mix we've used for years, and it beats the old hot brine method every time. There's also a regular dill mix if the kosher style doesn't crank your tractor.

The flowers will turn into cucumbers. If you want to turn them into pickles, you'll have to do that yourself! dance

Sorry--I couldn't resist that. not me

And believe it or not Rich, I knew that was coming the minute I
typed it but was to lazy to change it.

Yeah, throw in the shipping on that mix Jerry and you'd be
better off just buying the Vlasic or store bought pickles.
Think I'll stick with the McCormick's spice rack. Maybe next
year I'll sprout some dill of my own, I'm sure Bill has an
herb garden tucked away in some corner of his farm, sounds
like he grows everything else there.

Ya don't know what your missing Tiny if you've never developed a
taste for the sour. That's one of the things that's gonna get
me the rest of my 28 years. Sour kills off those bad bugs and
keeps me healthy, if you can believe that! When I was a working
man, I swear to this, I made my life easy by having the same
lunch every day for the last 27 of my carrier. A Polish ham
sandwich on white, dill pickle and handful of chips. Never
altered except for those days we had a retirement party.

Never was a fan of Bread and Butter pickles Vern, think there is
still a jar in the frig from last thanksgiving when we had the
gang over.

Well, looks like I'm gonna have to start spearmenting with
internet recipes. A lot of them are like a Rachel Ray recipe,
they look good till you make them, then it tastes like
crapola. Kind of hard to describe what something tastes like
in black and white, something like trying to explain what
something smells like or what an engine noise sounds like in
print.

yes, we've got dill around Denny, but don't use it much, just let it seed itself .... other than occasional sweet green relish don't much like pickles, get my sour from the cider vinegar I've been making for 30 years, which makes excellent pickles I'm told .... make sure you get pickling vinegar when you experiment, standard table vinegar isn't strong enough anymore

How far back are you looking to go Denny? I have all of my grandmother's cook books dating back to the 50's. There should be at least one good recipe in the mix of the hundred or so books.

Denny- here's my recipe:
/
Heat to boil:
1 qt pickling vinegar
2 qts water
1 cup regular salt
------------------
In each jar with the cucumber slices, add:
3 cloves garlic
1 big pinch of fresh dill leaves (or 1/2 to 1 Tbsp dill seed)
1 Rooster Spur hot pepper (or your favorite)
------------------
Pour the boiled vinegar/water/salt over the ingredients in the jar, leaving 1/2" expansion space.
Seal jars & hide 'em in a dark cabinet 4-6 weeks.
------------------
Refrigerate for about a week before enjoying.
/

Nothing special here, but it's any easy recipe passed down to me.
I'm making some pickles this week- figured I would share it. It will most definitely satisfy your taste for 'sour.'
