Best pickle recipe ever. I think the dill heads (seeded dill) is best, but in a pinch baby dill + a dash of dill seeds will do. Hope I don't get in trouble for this comment but, I have noticed a lot of "mushy pickle results" lately. My suggetion is to "cold can". A hot water bath is what the FDA insists be required for food safety, but a responsible canner or one that can use a computer to find out how to cold can might want to use. That is what the author's original recipe stated. That and the cold water ice bath are the key to a scrumptious pickle. My neices and nephews ask for them every summer. What more could you ask for in recipe? The only thing I wish to add for all those who wish to not be 100% purist is to half the white vinegar w/rice wine vinegar. It is in the vinegar isle of the grocery store and it usually Japanese. The flavor is a little bit smoother, but still has that garlic bite. Love it. Give it try and please comment. This is what my family LOVES!
