Ever wonder how to make homemade pickles? Well, look no further! It’s actually quite easy.
· fresh pickling cucumbers (cut however you like or not cut at all)
· sanitized jars and new lids
· a large pot with a lid
· solution of 3 parts water to 1 part apple cider vinegar, plus about 1 teaspoon of salt for every two cups of solution
· fresh dill sprigs
Heat lots of water in the large pot (or hot water bath). Put a dill sprig in every jar then fill the jars with the pickling cucumbers. Heat the solution to about 180 degrees, then equally divide it among the jars, making sure to cover the pickles (and leaving about an inch of space at the top of the jar). Screw the lids on finger tight then carefully lower then carefully into the large pot of hot water. Make sure that the jars are covered in water by at least a couple of inches. Put the lid on the pot then let it cook (“process”), for about 5-10 minutes. Then take them out of the hot water. Wait about a day to test the seal of one of the jars.
