 I am sorry for taking so long to get back with you...

Dill Pickle:

8 lbs fresh cucumbers 3 to 5 inches in length

1 1/4 cups canning salt (divided)

2 gallon water

6 cups vinegar (1 1/2 quarts)

1/4 cup sugar

8 cups water (2 quarts)

3 tablespoons whole mustard seed (1 teaspoon per unit)

2 tablespoons mixed pickling spices

1 1/2 teaspoons dill seed per pint

* 1 1/2 heads of dill per pint may be substituted for dill seed.

Wash and drain cucumbers. Cut off blossom end and discard. Make a brine of 3/4 cup salt and the 2 gallons of water and pour over cucumbers. Let stand 12 hours. Drain. 

Combine vinegar and remaining 1/2 cup of salt, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 quarts water and pickling spices (tied in thin white cloth).

Heat mixture to boiling. Pack cucumbers into clean hot jars; add mustard and dill seed to each jar. Cover with boiling vinegar solution to within 1/2 inch of top of jar. Adjust jar lids. Process in boiling waterbath. Pints 10 minutes, quarts 15 minutes. Yields 7 to 9 pints.
