Boil the water with the vinegar, and scant cup of salt. Put the other ingredients in each qt jar, and put cucumbers in each jar.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
We got the Hot Polish Dill recipe on Aug. 8, 1982 from Helen Potter in Sturgis, SD. We had gone to Sturgis for the Black Hills Bible Camp. People were coming in for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally so we left town and went to Bible Camp. We lived in Stillwater OK at the time. (We got the cucumber ring recipe at the same time. These became favorites though we came to use the Wanda Mears dill pickle recipe more because grape leaves were easier to find sometimes than alum.) This recipe is in Sarah's name because she wrote it in the book.
