Recipe by Tammy Gulgren
"These pickles taste so fresh and have just the right amount of dill and garlic. They taste great along-side a hotdog on a bun. They also taste great alone as a healthy snack. The pickles should be good for 6 weeks. Enjoy! You can also cut cucumbers into chips if you prefer a pickle chip instead of a spear."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

So easy! Absolutely delicious use for leftover cukes!!
I am sorry to say that these turned out badly and I don't know why. They were very soft and had an unpleasant taste. I have reviewed the amounts and directions carefully, and made sure the liquid was cooled as instructed. I can't see where I made an error. I make refrigerator pickles most years and have for a long time, so I do have some experience. I would really like to try a refrigerator dill pickle recipe again.
perfect . the only change is I add only a tea spoon of sugar
So great that it doesn't have as much sugar as other recipes!
Followed the recipe exactly and it was yummy! This is my first time making any type of pickle. Can I keep the juice and keep adding cucumbers? thank you for the recipe!
These really are delicious (and easy, too). Unless you're a gardener familiar with growing dill, you're probably like I am and don't know what a "head of dill" is. I bought a pkg of mini gourmet cukes (unwaxed so I didn't have to peel them) which turned out to be the perfect size for my jar. As far as the amount of the fresh dill to use, I just loaded up the jar with the the dill stems and cuke spears, and poured in the vinegar mixture. White vinegar is milder in taste, so these pickles won't make you pucker, and as others mentioned, I'm not sure you even need the small amount of sugar. They are crunchy and simply fresh tasting, and that works for me. I can see this on the Christmas Gift List this year.
Pretty amazing recipe-- easy to make and the pickles were delicious. I even went so far as to reuse the brine once with another set of cukes and they were just as good. Once they were gone, adding a bit of oil to the brine makes for an amazing oil and vinegar dressing for salads or even as an addition to potato salad.
I didn't know what a head of dill was, and I didn't know how to measure cucumber spears (obviously I don't spend much time in the kitchen), but these turned out crunchy and delicious. I think I'm going to add another cucumber to the existing juice to save some money. I don't grow cucumbers or dill so it was a bit pricey. Next year I'll grow both as my family LOVES their dill pickles!
