I picked up a packet put out by Mrs. Wages. The Kosher Dill one. I decided to try it. With the last of the cucumbers and a few I begged for, and a few zucchini and onions I tossed in because I didn't think I'd have enough, I made the last of my cucumber pickles this year. This does not mean I won't consider pickling something else, keep that in mind!
After listening and reading reviews from people and several sites I decided to up the flavor quotient just a tad by adding a clove of roasted garlic and 1/2 tsp dill weed to every pint (1/4 tsp to the half pint). I also added some Pickle Crisp to each jar. For those of you thinking they stopped making it, you were right, they apparently started making it again this year! I was lucky enough to lay my hands on a jar.
So anyway, the pickles. I decided to do them in spears since most were too gangly for pint jars and ended up with a bunch that were just right for half pint jars. Knowing someone will inevitably want a jar, these will be available for gifts/trade/etc. What I ended up with is 8 pints, 5 half pints of the cucumber pickles and 3 pints, 2 half pints of the zucchini pickles. All had a sliver or two of onion in them as well.
