These dill pickles will cure your pickle cravings.  Unlike bread and butter pickles, these pickles are not sweet, and they have a classic dill pickle flavor.  Great on sandwiches or as a healthy snack all by themselves.  These pickles will keep in the refrigerator for about eight weeks.  They can be eaten after two days of pickling, but they taste best after a week or more.  This recipe should not be used for pressure or hot water canning.


  • 3 large cucumbers, cut into 3-4 inch long sections and then quartered
  • 6 heads dill
  • 1 tablespoon white granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 dried red cayenne peppers
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon whole cloves
  • 1 teaspoon whole allspice
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 3/4 cups vinegar


Step 1

Mix the water, vinegar, and sugar together. Stir until sugar dissolves. Set aside.

Step 2

Put the garlic, cayenne peppers, coriander, cloves, allspice, and mustard in a jar or other resealable container.

Step 3

Pack the sliced cucumbers vertically into jar until the jar is full.

Step 4

Pour the water/vinegar/sugar mixture over the cucumbers until the liquid reaches the top of the jar. Tap to remove air bubbles if necessary.

Step 5

Put a lid on the jar and refrigerate for a minimum of two days.
