Let me know how they turn out!
Pickles look good Al I’ll bet they taste good too. You can’t go wrogwith garlic or onions. Any recipe that calls for a clove of garlic translates to me as more like 4 or 5 same with onions.
Your right Randy, garlic & onions really go good with dill pickles!
Made a batch of these and used the vac-sealer method. I made a few adjustments for my taste, 2 clove fresh garlic, and 2 slices jalapeno, then followed the rest of your recipe. Everyone who has tried them said they turned out GREAT!
These are a real winner, thanks for the recipe.
Glad to hear you liked them, now you won't be able to ever eat store bought pickles again!
Thanks for the recipe! Make some on Sunday and tried a few today and they taste good. Can’t want to see what the flavor brings in a month or so.
Does the saltiness calm down as time goes on? Might cut back on the pickling salt next batch.
They actually pick up more flavor as time goes on. I think 5 days in the vac container is good, then just store them in the brine. If they seem too salty to you, then yes cut back on the salt.
Just did 3 quarts . My Daughter got me a case of quart jars and the vac lid sealer for Christmas .
I hope you enjoy them!
I can't stand it . My kids keep saying " Don't open them . you have to wait " Be 3 days tomorrow , and they already look great .
The wait is worth it. Before I figured out the vac canister idea.
They would take at least 6 weeks before you could eat them.
Was 3 days this morning . Opened a jar of the regular . These are so good . Half the jar is gone already . The other 2 quarts have a whole medium Jalapeno in them .
The garlic was perfect , salt spot on . Crunchy , tart ,, good dill flavor . So good .
I did not use the alum . My chemistry major son suggested we didn't need it for a cold pack pickle . We will see if it affects the long term , but I really don't see them lasting very long .
Great recipe Al . I need to make more !
Glad to hear you enjoyed the pickles so much.
I know they are addictive & go really good with beer!
Definitely want to try this Al.
I'd like to do a vacuum method, but using pint jars, and the new vacuum sealing attachments I got recently.
Have you pickled other things, like carrots, asparagus, or other things?
I've long done my own hard boiled eggs, but now find my interests broadening.
I think the Pickles and Beer fridge is just Genius.
I haven't really pickled anything other than dills, but of course in the jar with the dills are jalapenos, & onions. And both of them come out good. I've also made sauerkraut a couple of times. But mainly I just stick to my dill pickles.
Good luck with yours!
Thank You, Al.
I'll try and report back when I get in a pickle...
OK, I couldn't wait.
So I got out a can of Green Beans, and made Dilly Beans with your recipe and my vacuum sealer. Everything went great, should be fun.
I had to leave out Dill seed, and Alum, because we don't have any. But I scraped up the rest.
It's going to be a long 5 days... (I'm going to follow your lead there, Al.)
My test bed...
In the Fridge. (Sorry, no beer in there. Darn Doctors anyway! When there is, it mysteriously disappears anyway.)
Thank You, Al!
They look good, can't wait to see how they taste!
I cheated Al. I opened them last night, 4 days in. I'm Shameless...
But OH! So great! In my opinion...
The two youngest granddaughters are here today. The 4 year old enthusiastically picked a bean from the jar and put it right in her mouth and started chewin.
Then her face kinda got screwy, and she shivered, and spit that bit up greenbean right out.
The 22 month old only smelled the jar and immediately proclaimed "YUKKIE!"
More for me!
Next batch I think I'll cut down the vinegar a tad.
But... I sure like them! And the onions are great, too.
But the vacuum curing worked great.
Call me Pint Sized Pickler...
Or Grandpa Yukkie...
I ate the whole jar.
Your hooked now Buddy!
