Im looking for a good kosher dill pickle recipe that is easy and the pickles stay crispy. Anyone willing to share a recipe? Or any secrets to keeping the pickles crispy? Ive tried different recipes and nothing seems to be to my liking or the different batches of pickles are inconsistent.

I always use the Ms Wages packets and have never had a problem. The key is to put them in the fridge the night before opening them and they are always crispy for me. Otherwise, the Ball Blue Book of Canning has some recipes I am going to experiment with soon.

1) Wash the cukes really well, make you do use fresh ones with no soft spots. One small soft spot on one cuke will wreck a whole jar.
2) Trim the blossom ends of the cukes before processing, they contain an enzyme that can soften texture.
3) Add either pickle crisp or alum to each jar during processing. Old school canners swear by alum, I use pickle crisp and it works well.

I never cared for the Ms Wages packs, always too salty for me. I'm making some on Saturday and will post my brine recipe before then. It's really straightforward and I use it for any processed pickled veg I make. 1-2 garlic cloves per pint jar or 2-4 cloves per quart, 1-2 dill flower heads and a fresh dill sprig or two per jar for kosher dills.

Ms Wages has worked ok for me in the past. Side note- I bought a jar of horseradish pickles from Bucky's Bar at the State HS Trap shoot this year, Man they were good! I'm soaking some hardboiled eggs in the leftover brine now! MMM-MMM.

Here is a recipe we really like, but we have never canned them, always just make enough for a 6-8 months.


2 DILL FLOWERS
2 CLOVES GARLIC PEELED AND HALVED
1-1/4 POUND CUKES (8-10) PICKLE SIZED
6 LONG SPRIGS FRESH DILL
1 TBS COARSE KOSHER SALT
VINEGAR
DISTILLED WATER



PUT DILL FLOWER AND GARLIC IN BOTTOM OF MASON JAR ADD CUKES, PUT THE SPRIGS IN CENTER OF CUKES, ADD SALT, FILL JAR WITH EQUAL AMOUNTS OF WATER AND VINEGAR TO WITHIN AN 1/8 INCH OF THE TOP, PUT ON SEAL AND RING, SHAKE TO DISSOLVE SALT, SET UPSIDE DOWN ON COUNTER AWAY FROM SUNLIGHT AND HEAT SOURCES, LET SIT 4-5 DAYS FLIPPING JAR EACH DAY, THEN 2 DAYS UPRIGHT, THEN REFIDGERATE, THEY WILL BE RAEDY AFTER THE 2 DAYS IN FRIDGE, THEY LAST VERY WELL FOR 6 MONTHS, THEN START TO GET SOFT THE LONGER THEY SIT.
