NOTE: Some people use only a 1/3 cup salt in this recipe.

The secret in this recipe is to use the large flowering dill, feathery dill will not do. The other ingredients can be varied according to personal taste. If you prefer a very crisp pickle, open the jar a day or two after canning, as the cucumbers will soften with longer storage.
