Claussen Kosher Pickle Copycat

I found this to be almost identical to Claussen Pickles. The key to really crisp pickles is to use very fresh pickling cucumbers. Regular salad cucumbers usually have a wax coating which just doesn't work. Also, they have much bigger seeds and a thick skin which is yucky for pickles.

  • 15-16 Pickling Cucumbers Quartered
  • 1 bunch(es) Dill Weed divided
  • 6 clove(s) Fresh Garlic Minced

  1. Quarter the pickles and pack into two sterile quart-size glass or plastic containers. Add half of the dill to each container while packing. (Fresh from a heated dishwasher if fine. Never use a metal container.)

  4. Cover tightly with fitted cover or plastic wrap and allow to cool.

  5. Store on counter top for up to 3 days before refrigerating.

  6. They will keep for up to a month, but they never last that long at our house.
