    I make several batches of sweet cucumber pickles each year. My husband loves them, plus I use them in potato salad etc. I have no trouble making crispy sweet pickles, but my dill pickles always come out "soft". Does anyone here have a TRIED and TRUE recipe that makes dill pickles that are crispy? Something that must be easy since I haven't figured out the ones I already have tried.... Thank you for your help.

    Here is my recipe for Dill Pickles. It won the blue ribbon at the Indiana State Fair last year.

    4 quarts water
    1 quart vinegar
    1 cup canning salt
    Heat to boiling.
    1 head dill per jar
    1 clove garlic per jar
    Split pickles into halves or quarters and place in jar with dill and garlic. Pour vinegar mixture over pickles, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Top with lid and ring. Process 5 minutes in boiling water bath.

    .
    Do you pack the jars pretty tight with the pickle strips or do you leave them free enough for more of the brine?

    This may be my first year of making good dill pickles!!! Thank you for sharing, especially since it has GOT to be good!

    PROCESS 5 MINUTES ??? :shock: :shock: :shock:

    No wonder my pickles are MUSH - I think I gave them a bath for 15-20 minutes!

    They're dilly but mush :( :( :oops: :cry:

    The recipe in a newer cookbook says you should use a timer ,as the 5mins in hot water bath is critical for crisp pickles.
