We love to make homemade pickles. Once you’ve tasted homemade it is very difficult to go back to store bought. They are the most amazing to have on your burgers and in your salads. Plus they are easy to make and inexpensive. Follow Shelly’s instructions below for some great pickles to load up in your pantry.
How To Make And Can Your Own Homemade Pickles
By: Shelly Hill
During the summer gardening season, we always end up with an abundance of cucumbers, so we like to make our own fresh pickles and can them for future use.
Both of the following recipes use fresh cucumbers along with various other ingredients.
25 cucumbers, sliced
4 large onions, sliced
2 large peppers, sliced
1/2 cup canning salt
5 cups white vinegar
2 tablespoons mustard seed
1 teaspoon Tumeric
In a large kettle or large bowl, combine the sliced cucumbers, onions and peppers with the canning salt. Cover and let mixture sit for 4 hours, stirring once every hour. After 4 hours, drain the liquid from the bowl.
In a large kettle, combine the vinegar, mustard seed and Tumeric. Bring mixture to a boil and boil for 4 minutes. Reduce heat and stir in the cucumber, onions and peppers mixture. Simmer for 5 minutes on low. Ladle cucumbers into hot sterilized canning jars, wipe the rim clean and seal. Process in a water bath canner for 10 minutes.
8 cups tap water
4 cups white vinegar
2/3 cup canning salt
garlic and dill to taste
In a large kettle, combine the water, white vinegar and canning salt. Bring this liquid to a rapid boil and boil for 10 minutes. Place cucumber spears, dill and garlic into your clean and hot canning jars. Add 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar to each jar. Using a ladle, spoon the hot liquid into your canning jars, leaving a 1/2″ head space. Add 1 pea sized lump of alum to each jar. Seal jars and process in your water bath canner for 15 minutes.
