Zesty Honey-Pilsner Pickles

Ingredients
3 1/2
pounds 3- to 4-inch pickling cucumbers*
1
12 ounce bottle pilsner beer
1 3/4
cups water
1 3/4
cups cider vinegar
1 1/2
cups white vinegar
1
cup honey
1/4
cup pickling salt
7
cloves garlic, smashed
7
teaspoons whole multicolor peppercorns
7
teaspoons mustard seeds

Directions

  1. Thoroughly scrub cucumbers. Remove stems and blossoms; slice off blossom ends. Cut cucumbers into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices.
  2. In a 5- to 6-quart stainless-steel, enamel, or nonstick heavy pot combine beer, the water, cider vinegar, white vinegar, honey, and pickling salt. Bring mixture to boiling, stirring to dissolve honey. Skim off any foam.
  3. Pack cucumber slices loosely into seven hot sterilized pint canning jars, leaving a 1/2-inch headspace. Add 1 clove garlic, 1 teaspoon peppercorns, and 1 teaspoon mustard seeds to each jar. Pour hot vinegar mixture over cucumbers, maintaining the 1/2-inch headspace. Wipe jar rims; adjust lids and screw bands.
  4. Process filled jars in a boiling-water canner for 10 minutes (start timing when water returns to boiling). Remove jars from canner; cool on wire racks. Let stand at room temperature for 1 week before serving. Makes 7 pints.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip:

If small pickling cucumbers are not available, cut field (regular garden) cucumbers into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices. If you purchase cucumbers for pickling, be sure they have not been coated in wax, which impedes the pickling process.
