Remembering Our Danube Swabian Ancestors


Open Crock Dill Pickles

by Larry Hale, 4 Dec 2005

Comment:  My grandmothersí recipe.

  • Wash crock

  • Put one large head of dill in the bottom

  • Add 1 dry hot pepper and Ĺ toe of garlic

  • Wash pickles and fill the crock to within 3 inches of the top. (largest pickles on the bottom)

  • Pack solid

  • Cover with water and salt to taste with non-iodized salt

Cover crock with a plate turned upside down and a weight placed on top. You donít want the pickles floating.

After a few days they are ready to eat. Take out just what you need for each meal.
