I am really glad that this recipe was added to your list think you i always wanted to no now to do this the right way
I never use white vinegar to pickle anything. The taste is far too harsh. My advice? Use Apple Cider Vinegar instead. White vinegar is good for washing windows, that's about it.
Be careful about cutting down on vinegar. The acid in the vinegar is important to safely preserve the food. I haven't made this recipe yet (and from these reviews I'll probably find a different recipe). So I'm not saying this recipe is or isn't too vinegary. Just a word of caution about adjusting the vinegar when you're canning.
It doesn't ay how much water to use??? It doesn't even say water in the ingredients list............poorly done recipe. Clearly no edit on this by someone that knows what they are doing.
I did not like this recipe and I am wondering why it is called the Best Ever Dill Pickle. Like the last review it is so vinegary that it takes takes your breath away. I am sad that I wasted my fresh garden cucumbers on this recipe. Will be looking for another recipe.
I harvested about 9 cucumbers from our garden so I thought I'd give this a try. It's a good recipe, but with some minor adjustments. The first time I made it, it was way too vinegary. I just made a second batch this past weekend and cut it down to 3 cups white vinegar and it's WAY better. I added various seasonings to it and it was delicious :) Also, I boiled all the ingredients together (vinegar, water, sugar, pickling salt, and 6 T of dill seed) and poured into each jar. So my advice is definitely try this recipe, but perhaps cut down on the vinegar.
