Thread: Kosher Dill Pickle recipe

    Kosher Dill Pickle recipe

    Kosher Dill Pickles

    14 cups water
    2 cups white vinegar
    4 large cloves of garlic thinly sliced
    3/4 cup KOSHER salt
    sprigs and stems of fresh dill
    pickling cucumbers

    If you want whole pickles cut a half inch off each end of the
    pickling cuke, or you can half or quarter them. Put some pieces of
    dill and garlic on the bottom of the jars being used then start
    packing the pickles in it. Add more garlic and dill as you keep
    adding more of the pickles.

    Put the water, vinegar and kosher salt into a large pot and bring
    to a boil, boil for one minute, stir and then immediately pour the
    brine solution over the pickles. Save some extra brine as the levels
    might go down after a couple of days.

    Keep uncovered and unrefrigerated for 3 days then cover and
    refrigerate overnight. Eat and enjoy!



    *Make sure you only use kosher salt, and only use the pickling cukes as the regular cucumbers have a harder skin and don't taste as good. I like to add a little bit more garlic and a tiny bit more salt.

    I usually only make a half recipe at a time which is enough to make a big gallon jug and a couple of little ones but it depends on how tightly you pack the pickles. You can even throw in halved green tomatoes, sliced Hungarian hot peppers or if you're daring enough some those really hot little red peppers, just cut the tops off of them.

    I harvest my own dill from my garden and I like to break the top half off the dills plants so that the bottoms will keep growing...and you can use all of the plant, the top seed heads, foliage and especially the stems, just cut them into 4" pieces and pack them all around the pickles in the jar.

    Keep the jars in the sink while pouring the hot brine over them as once in a blue moon a jar make crack on you. I do not pour directly from the pot, I just keep refilling a large measuring cup, seems to protect them against the jar cracking.

    This is such a tasty recipe for crispy kosher dills and so easy to make too. Since they're cold packed and not hot packed they will only last about a month in the fridge but they're usually gone way before the month is done. :)

    I made dill pickles earlier this year and added a dried hot pepper to each jar. I canned about 6 pints, I think.

    I don't like hot/spicy peppers but I've done that on request from other folk. This year I have a few Hungarian hot wax and jalapenos pepper plants that I can pick from and slice into rings to add to some pickle batches.

    I still have a lot of home grown garlic and dill that I can use and since the cucumber crop did so poorly this year I'll probably use the above recipe to pickle more peppers. Have you ever tried pickled green tomatoes? I quarter them and make that too and will sometimes add the hot peppers to them also.

    Krys, where would I find pickling cukes? The stores I know of carry the regular ones. Maybe Whole Foods?

    Possibly, call them first tho to see if they're available. I've always grown my own but I do see them occasionally at a local fruit market I go to along with bundles of fresh dill for sale too.

    A "kosher" dill pickle is not necessarily kosher in the sense that it has been prepared in accordance with Jewish dietary law. Rather, it is a pickle made in the traditional manner of Jewish New York City pickle makers, with generous addition of garlic and dill to a natural salt brine. -Wiki

    Ok thanks....I thought the cucumbers became kosher because they were circumcised
