pickles2

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Preparation:

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.
