It is critical to use scientifically tested recipes for making pickles to ensure their safety. Wash cucumbers. Pour over cucumbers and let stand 12 hours. Add mixed pickling spices tied in a clean, white cloth.
Heat to boiling. Fill jars with cucumbers. Remove air bubbles. Wipe jar rims. Adjust lids and process pints for 10 minutes or quarts for 15 minutes in a boiling water bath. My recommendation is to dispose of the spoiled pickles where your pets if any cannot get to them See HGIC Preserving Foods for recommendations for safe disposal of spoiled canned foods.
See the following links for tested information about making cucumber pickles from our Home and Garden Information Center. Menu Audiences Clemson. Academics Research Extension About Giving. Procedure: Wash cucumbers. The very best pickles cant be bought in a grocery store.
In those years, I find myself scanning the supermarket shelves, hoping for anything that might qualify as a real pickle. Every time I reach this point I vow that next summer there will be more pickles. My secret to the perfect pickle is to select small cucumbers, about the size of your pinky finger. Anything bigger is best suited to pickle relish or hog feed.
If you have really super tiny baby cucumbers, try making miniature gherkins cornichons , which are made with a very different recipe. When you select cucumbers for canning pickles, the seeds should be barely visible. The picture below has a cross-section of 3 different cucumbers. If you can this cucumber, the center would fall out and the outside would never be crisp. If all you have is giant cucumbers, try making refrigerator dill pickles.
The bottom two cucumbers are both acceptable for canning but choose the smaller slices on the left for best results. The top cucumber is only suitable for hog feed. The one at the bottom right will work, but the bottom left cucumber will give the best canned pickles. If you have very large cucumbers and your heart is set on canning, you can also try making either dill pickle relish or bread and butter pickles. Both of those recipes are designed to accommodate large overripe cucumbers.
The cucumbers are layered with salt for about 2 hours before canning, which draws out extra moisture and removes bitterness from the overripe cucumbers. Added sugar in both recipes also helps mask any residual bitterness, and a bit of turmeric makes up for the fading color as the cucumbers are past prime. Jar size also makes a big difference for home canned pickles.
Always can in pints rather than quarts. Quarts require longer processing times and are liable to produce mushy pickles. Not to mention a lot of lime. These days, most canners substitute something called pickle crisp. The calcium helps to reinforce the cell walls in the cucumbers, and that keeps them from popping during the canning process. The end result is firmer pickles without a lot of extra work.
Just spoon it into the bottom of the jars along with the spices. Pickle crisp is optional, but it will help ensure crisp home-canned pickles. The spices in my pickle recipe include fresh dill, mustard seeds, dill seeds, coriander seeds and black peppercorns. Note again the small cucumber slices, with seeds barely visible. Making pickles at home is simple, assuming you have the right ingredients. I include fresh dill, mustard seeds, dill seeds, coriander seeds and black peppercorns.
Fresh dill tends to come in large bundles from the grocery store or farmers market, and if you have extra, try making dill pickled green beans , known as dilly beans here in Vermont. Start by packing spices, cucumbers, onions and garlic tightly into jars, leaving 1 inch of headspace. Cover with hot brine, and water bath can.
If you really want to save money on pickling, buy your canning supplies in bulk. While rings and jars can be reused, lids should be new each time to ensure a good seal. We buy our canning lids in bulk online and bring our canning unit costs down considerably. Pioneering today has a canning with confidence course that takes you through the ins and outs of canning from basic canning safety all the way through to pressure canning meat at home.
The course covers:. This dill pickle recipe yields crisp pickles and is easy for beginning canners. This recipe makes slightly more brine than you need to can 5 pints of pickles, to make sure you have enough to properly fill all the jars.
Store any extra in a mason jar at room temperature for later use. The spices can also be adjusted without affecting canning safety, based on your preferences. The salt is not necessary for preservation in this recipe, and can be adjusted to your tastes. Salt levels in pickles are a very personal thing, and I've seen recipes that use A LOT more salt, and just a few that use less.
DO NOT use table salt, it has additives that don't work well for canning. Lacking pure canning salt, use kosher salt. The acidity in the vinegar is what preserves the pickles and makes them suitable for water bath canning. For a more sour pickle, you can increase the amount of vinegar but never reduce it.

I always have them growing at varying sizes and have to wait a few days to save enough for a batch.
By that time, I feellike the ones I picked the first day are soggy and maybe the reason I get soggy pickles. Also, I never heard the pint jar rule before. If you grow plants you should have enough for a small canning batch twice a week. Since they can up so fast I just do a few pints a twice a week for about a month.
Stagger your seedling times, as the plants mature the younglings for each plant set will match up as the first yield is always smaller than the last. This is a great recipe! I love seeing people doing home canning, it really is a great project to start and be proud of once it is finished. I need to start pickling at home more — I usually just purchase mine from the store.
I know I would save much more money doing it myself. Thank you for sharing your recipe! The whole spices season your pickles and then stay at the bottom of the jar. Ground spices will cover everything and the pickles you pull out of the jar will be a bit mucky from the spices. Same flavoring, but just shmutz everywhere. If you do for some reason use ground spices, use a lot less. If I read the instructions correctly, you add the jars to the canner after the water is already boiling.
Is that correct? I have always had the jars hot, packed them, then put them in the canner, and brought to a boil. Putting jars into boiling water kinda makes me a little nervous! I start the water boiling before I even think about prepping the vegetables.
It usually takes at least half an hour for my canner full of water to come to a boil, and all of that time is extra cook time for the pickles. The brine is boiling, goes into jars and then those nearly boiling jars go into boiling water. The thermal shock to the glass was too much.
So yes, long reply later, the water in your canner should be boiling before you load the pickles, to minimize cook time for the cucumbers and to prevent jar breakage from thermal shock. Which does not destroy the pectin in the pickles? Yes, but it does need to be carefully managed in order to avoid spoilage. I was concerned about boiling since the jar packagine suggested degrees in order for the jars not to break. I pushed the limit on that a bit.
I also misread the recipe and added WAY too many spices. I will try again. I did make a jar of the refriderator pickles with larger slices and they are really good. Add them in to the bottom of the jar with the dry herbs. The pickles will help hold them down and keep them submerged.
Just made the recipe. But afterwards I realized you have blackpeppercorns listed in ingredients but no step to add it. Thanks for catching that, all the dried herbs go in together into the bottom of each jar. A lot of the stronger flavors come from the dill, mustard and coriander seeds. Can I make these without the coriander seeds? I only have the powder on hand. You can skip the mustard seeds all together or use powdered if you want, either way.
Just a heads up that cucumbers are technically fruit not vegetables. Had to point that out owning a nursery business and all. Can you also add a step about adding the calcium chloride? I followed the recipe and forgot all about it! If you water bath can them as instructed, they do not need to be refrigerated. The processing time is 10 minutes for pints or 15 minutes for quarts. Would everything in the recipe be the same if I cut the cuts lengthwise for long pickles?
Have a question. I have enough brine left over for another couple of pints or a quart. Can I save the brine and reheat it the next time I have another batch of cucumbers? Of course! The brine will keep just fine at room temperature for quite some time.
Thanks for a new recipe… I agree on tbe store bought pickles, I rather go without…. While that works fine most the time, there is a small risk of contamination using that method. Hi, I have been making pickles for over 40 years and I never use the amount of vinegar to water. The pickles never spoil. I pack my cucumbers in hot boiled jars. With garlic and a sprig of dill in bottom of each jar and a sprig on top.
Pour hot brine over them and then sterilized lids and cap and a 5 minute bath with water already boiling before put jars in. The brine is 8. These are crispy and the best pickles you will ever taste. Not mushy and stay crisp for at least 6 months. To stop garlic from turning blue in the jar I blanch garlic for a few minutes in in boiling water.
Try these and if you are paranoid put in refrigerator, But, I assure you if you use sterile process in jars and cooking you will not have any problems. You could pressure can these, but the cucumbers would probably come out as pulp. These are actually recommended for low temp pasteurization degrees for 30 minutes for best results. Homemade vinegar might not be strong enough to pickle the cucumbers and acidify them enough for canning. I usually toss in 1 tsp per jar.
Give them a smell to make sure they still have some flavor left. I forgot to add the water to the brine, what should I do? I enjoy them that way too, just a bit more bite to them. Yes, you can multiply this recipe as much as you want double, triple, etc. Instead of buying the spices seperate, I bought Ball Pickling spice which contains mustard seed, dill seed, coriander seeds and peppercorns.
How much of this already mixed spice would you add to your pint jars? Also could I reduce then size of my jars to 8 oz? First time canner here. Great if you live alone though. Best of luck with your pickles! I just made this recipe but realized I forgot to put a lid over the pot during the water bath! Any thoughts on boiling without a pot lid? Dear Lord. I had over 4 quarts of pickles left over after I canned 5 pints. The recipe is way off.
