SUPER EASY DILL PICKLES

 

It’s not even May and I’m already canning pickles and putting peaches in the freezer.  I have never had cucumbers ready this early in the year but this mild winter has been great for the plants.

The first plants I put in the garden was cucumbers and I have been harvesting them for a couple of weeks.  I only have four plants producing  but they are producing more than we can eat so I decided it was time to pull out the canning supplies.

Alicia, from Simple words by A, gave me a jar of pickles last year and they were amazing.  When I asked about her recipe, she told me she used Mrs Wages’ Kosher Dill Pickle Mix.  

I have been making dill pickles for years and had never used a mix but her pickles were so good that I made a trip to Walmart yesterday to get a bag of Mrs Wages’ Pickle mix.  I love that you can make small batches at a time and store the leftover liquid in the refrigerator.

If you are interested, here is what you will need with this mix:  Mrs. Wages Kosher Dill Pickles Quick Process Pickle Mix, 6.5 OZ

  • 9-11 lbs pickling cucumbers (I do small batches so you don’t worry if you don’t have enough – You can make your pickles as you harvest your cucumbers)
  • 3 1/3 cups white distilled vinegar
  • 7 1/3 cups water
  • 1 pouch Mrs. Wages’ Kosher Dill Pickles Mix

If your local Walmart does not have this, you can order it online.  They have free 2 day shipping now.

You can order it from Amazon but it’s more expensive.  You can click on the package to the right and it will carry you directly to the Walmart page if you want to check it out.

 

Don’t forget to pick up any Canning Supplies you need for this year’s harvest!
