Name: Michele Roth
N.E. Indiana
Kosher Dills

4 pounds cucumber, 2-4" long
3 1/2 TBS pickling salt
1 1/2 TBS mustard seeds
3 cups water
3 cups white vinegar (but I substitute a homemade herbal vinegar sometimes)
6 Bay leaves
6 cloves garlic (probably the most important ingredient for can't stop eatability Big Grin )
6 fresh dill heads or 1 1/2 TBS dill seeds

This is a canning recipe....if ya want to cheat you can save the juice from the store bought pickles and add your own cukes to it, (after presoaking them in the pickling salt, of course;>)

You may however, just be missing the taste of the preservatives and flavor enhancers. We get so used to them that when we eat foods without them (like homemade chicken broth, or what-have-you), they no longer taste "right".
