Grandpa K's Crock Dill Pickles
1 Peck pickles
3 Bunches Dill
2 Heads Garlic
2 Grape Leaves
Brine
5 qts. water
2 c white vinegar
1 c salt


1 Place Grape leaves on the bottom of crock add dill, pickles, and garlic.
2.Repeat layer till all are used
3. Bring Brine to full Boil.
4. Pour over until all the layers in Crock are Covered
5. Place plate on top with Gallon Jug Filled with Water.
6. Let stand in cool place for about a week before eating. (Start checking them after 2 days)

After we wash the cucumbers we ice them down for a couple of hours, ( It helps to make a crispy pickle)
We also put about 2 pieces of Garlic a layer.


The first layer of pickles

A layer of Dill

Almost done they just need to be covered in another layer on dill and then the brine needs to be poured on…




My grandparents would make these every year with cukes right from there garden…..We are using there old crock which holds a triple batch of pickles….

It's hard to find the big crocks now a days...In this area I think everyone's grandparents made these...But like a lot of things this tradition has fallen to the wayside #-o
BTW the kids had a good time helping.

Probably but make sure it is food grade plastic...Those cukes sit in it for about a week...

What a crock!


the recipe I posted is for a single batch...You could probably get a double batch in a 5 gal crock....or use whatever cukes you can't get in and make bread and butter pickles....

We do can some of them when they are done...As far as when the pickles are ready you need to test them after a couple of days...depending on the size of the pickles and other variables.....We do can some of the pickles when they are done....We mix up a fresh batch of brine and put a fresh sprig of dill in along with the a piece of garlic....They will keep for a decent lenght of time if you don't can them.....I don't know how long becuase the ones we make tend not to stick around very long....the ones we made last year and canned were still crispy as of yesterday..We ate the last jar for last year yesterday..Hope I answered your question.
