Claussen Kosher Pickles Copycat
I love Claussen Kosher Pickles, but they are a bit pricey for me. Now with this copycat recipe I can make my own at home.
1 gallon cucumbers, washed
6 heads fresh dill
1 1/2 quarts water
1/3 cup instant minced onion
1/2 tablespoon mustard seeds
2 cups cider vinegar
1/2 cup canning salt
6 garlic cloves, minced
6 quart jar, sterilized, depends on size of cucumbers
Sterilize jars, lids and rings, I just put my in the dishwasher.
Quarter cucumbers into lengthwise slices.
Place cucumbers in jars with dill heads.
Mix water, vinegar, canning salt, garlic, mustard seeds and instant minced onion into large pan; boil to dissolve the salt; cool.
Pour mixture over cucumbers; seal with lid and ring.
Let sit out for three days, turn the jars occasionally, then refrigerate.
They will keep for one year in refrigerator.
Note: Do not use the regular cucumber in store, they are covered with wax and will not work. Ask for pickling cucumbers, they are wax free.
