These pickles are so wonderful, I have NO desire to try another!!! Thanks Gramdma for this simple and delicious recipe.
Family favorite. Pickles stay crunchy
Perfect blend! I soaked my cucumbers in an ice bath for 4 hours prior to canning -- they had a fabulous crunch! :-)
What is a dill head? I know what fresh dill is, but I don't see a head.
