Garlic Dill Pickles


This week I was lucky enough to receive a bag full of fresh cucumbers from my husband's aunt's garden.  There were way too many for us to just eat, especially considering that I am the only member of the family who likes cucumbers.  So I decided to give dill pickles a try.  I know canning may seem scary to people who have never done it before but pickles are a super easy way to give it a try.  I used this recipe.  I canned mine in smaller jelly jars so I would have some to give away, but you can use quarts or whatever you want.  I'm now eyeballing anything living and trying to figure out if I can put it in a jar!  I also got this book from the library and it's a great resource for canning.
