Careful with your salt. Don't use any with iodine as it will make your garlic turn blue!Here's my favorite recipe... Boil3 qts. water4 C. vinegar2/3 C saltAdd to each jarEnough dill and garlic to cover the bottom. Cukes. Then fill with the brine. There are 2 ways to process this. One is the traditional water bath. The other is to put the jars in a big pan with about an inch of water in the oven. I can't remember what temp I used but I did the same processing time as the water bath. Both are good. Makes 8 quarts.
*sniff* wish one of us had room for frigerator pickles! I'm thinking homemade claussen's.. I might have room for a couple jars, though... But in my fridge they may freeze and nothing is more disappointing than a once-frozen refrigerator pickle.
