How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large, heatproof measuring cup, combine the vinegar, sugar, salt, mustard seeds, coriander seeds and dill seeds with the hot water and stir until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Let the brine cool.

Step 2    

In a large bowl, toss the cucumbers with the dill and garlic. Pour the brine over the cucumbers and turn to coat. Place a small plate over the cucumbers to keep them submerged, then cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Refrigerate the pickles overnight, stirring once or twice. Serve cold.

Make Ahead

The dill pickles can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Review Body: A week?? When you pickle cucumbers (i.e., make pickles) the salt and vinegar act as preservatives. This means they're -preserved- longer than food that would normally go bad after about a week. Pickles will pretty much last as long as you need them to, so make a bunch! #askachef

Review Body: Highly disappointed!! They taste like sweet pickles with garlic... nothing about them taste dill. I thought by using sugar it was to tone down something in the recipe.... need to be labled sweet not dill

Review Body: I have made these numerous times and they are truly delicious. I have an abundance of cucs in my garden and am wondering if I can put these in a hot water bath and preserve them?

Review Body: How long will they keep in a fridge? I love pickles and I was thinking about a week or two to store it and have some to gobble whenever I get hungry.

Review Body: I noticed a few people ask this but didn't receive a response. Will this recipe work if we alter it for hot-water bath canning? Instead of soaking the pickles in the mix can I just boil the mix then pour it directly into jars with the cut cukes? Or does it lose something in translation.

Review Body: Should there be more vinegar to the brine to keep it fresh a little longer?
