Do you have an over abundance of cucumbers like we do every year? Have you seen how cheap they are to buy right now? Why not make some homemade Dill Pickle Spears? If you don’t want to can them, you can store them in the refrigerator for up to two weeks although they taste the best if you wait a week before eating them.

sounds easy enough and something I’ve never done but have always wanted to do
I like these because even if you don’t do canning, they can be made up and kept in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. Thank you Beth💕
exactly my style
I didn’t know for many years that pickles were just cucumbers. My mind was so blown when I found out. 😆 I go through phases when I can eat a whole bottle in one sitting.
My son makes them too and eats them at work. He let me taste his on his birthday and he put red pepper flakes in his, nice and spicy. I’m with you though Ab, I grab a fork and the jar of pickles and eat away.
Yum! You are amazing!
You are too kind Nancy!
Haven’t made my pickles yet this year, but these certainly look delicious!
Thank you Dorothy❤️
Thank you for the reblog Ned❣️
These pickles look yummy!
Thank you Vickie, we love dill pickles.
They look better than cucumbers. I like Dills better than Sweet Pickles. My mom used to love Red Rose Pickles, a Canadian brand and that was because in their pickle mix they had pickled onions and pickled cauliflower. After we moved here, we’d get a case of them to bring home every time we went to visit my grandmother.
Oh yes that is a fantastic pickle mix! I’m a sucker for anything pickled.
You have to try pickling cauliflower and pearl onions. Try it, you’ll like it as the commercial goes.
I used to make large gallon jars full of them years ago. I don’t know why I ever stopped. I can’t remember everything I put in the jar but it was more than those two, maybe carrots too.
My mom was a fan of pickled beets too, but not the harvard beets, the pickled ones. We had a restaurant chain we went to (Sign of the Beefeater) and they always had a buffet table set up … all that was on it was their homemade pickled beets and pickles.
Yum, two of my favorites too.
Thank you for the reblog❣️
Thank you so much 💕
Nicely done – it is hard for the beginning canner to find clearcut directions.
Thank you so much Bernadette 💕
We have a friend that will eat just cucumbers when they’re on the road … while the rest of us are enjoying sandwiches (and probably other unhealthy snacks). I’m sure he will love this recipe – I will pass it on to his wife 😄.
I love munching on cucumbers too but I’m with you, I would need a sandwich too. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
Yes we do the same .Big cupboard floor to ceiling full of pickles, Apple cider and home made chutnies . Pickled onions and pickles cabbage .My favourite is pickled garlic . Having so much land orchard and veg gardens as well as my English pleasure gardens we tend to store what we can in Summers. Open cider Christmas time and its saving cash on guests visits. Jams and marmalade we make too. Only then have to buy Seville oranges in season and two lemons to make good Marmalade for morning toasted bread.
Love to see pictures of your vegetable garden and your cupboard full of canned items when you’re done. It is so much work to preserving food and there is nothing more rewarding than to see the finished product all lined up.
My wife just pointed out to me the other day the new batch of slices she made would be better after a week or so, and that was certainly true in our instance…worth the wait!
Definitely, gives them so much more flavor.
Yum! Making pickles is something I’ve never tried, but you make it sound easy. Thanks for sharing your expertise, Diane.
It is easy and worth it! Thank you!
Thank you for the reblog🥰
I’ve only canned peaches. It sounds like you do a lot of this thing…canning, dehydrating etc. That’s great. I love cucumbers sliced with yogurt over them and some dill weed, salt and pepper. Sometimes I’ll add tomatoes.
I have canned so many things over the years. Salsa was my favorite, I made almost 50 pints per year.
I love dill pickles and these looks super delicious 😋
Thank you they do disappear fast.
