need pickle receipegreenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
A few years ago I found a great pickle recipe in some womans mag. I don't remember which one. It was for dill pickles. You prepared your cukes, packed them in jars and added your spices. It was 2 heads of dill, 5 peppercorns, some dill weed, dill seed, garlic, and more that I can't remember. You then poured your brine over and sealed the jars. In 6 weeks you had the best pickles. Of course, I lost the recipe somehow. does anyone have a similar recipe to share? I would love to have it again. Thanks, Joanie

I don't have the receipe for you but maybe this will help you or someone else with their pickles. Mine have always came out soggy. I was told that it is the minerals in my well water that does this and to use the bottle water you buy in the store when making them. I will give it a try this summer..after all I only have 50 billion gallons of bottles water in the attic from Y2K !!! Also, will your pickles be OK without processing them ??? Good Luck
