This is Brad’s recipe for sweet garlic pickles. Slicing them lengthwise will make them perfect for sandwiches (e.g. smoked meat or ham with mustard). This recipe will yield about 2 litres of pickles.
- 1/4 c salt
- ice (quite a bit) or really cold water
- 3 litres of cucumbers (thinly sliced lengthwise)
- about 1 tsp dried dill
- 6 whole or sliced garlic cloves
- 4 c sugar
- 3 c vinegar
Layer ice, cucumber, garlic, and salt in a large vat or sink or soak cucumber, garlic, and salt in very cold water for 3 hours. Drain well. Place pickles standing up in jars. Bring remaining ingredients to a boil in a pot. Carefully pour hot liquid into each of the jars and seal.
