I know we all have fall on the mind and this is definitely a bit of a summer post, but I took these photos months ago and have just now gotten around to posting them! I wanted to share my Dads homemade pickle recipe with you all because it is just so good ! He picks all his cucumbers from the garden so they are home grown, organic and delicious!
1/4 cup pickling salt
1/2 gallon of water
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 tsps. pickling spice
2 cloves of pressed garlic per jar
Boil salt, water, sugar, and vinegar in a pot for 7 minutes.
Remove from heat and add pickling spice (wrapped in cheesecloth bundle).
Let cool for 5 minutes.
Fill a mason jar with sliced cucumbers and pressed garlic, then pour slightly cooled pickling water to the top of the jar.
Seal and refrigerate for up to a week before eating.
