1/2 cup iodized salt
1 dozen large cucumbers
Dill seed or dill weed

Directions:
Directions:
Boil water and salt together for 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Place 3 large cucumbers each into canning jars (1/2 gallon size). In each jar, place a large thick sprig of dill weed or 1 teaspoon dill seeds. Pour room temp. water/salt mixture over the cucumbers up to the top of the jar. Put canning jar lids on tightly. That's it. It takes at least 4 weeks for the dilling process. The jars do not need to be sealed by canning process. When jars are opened, there may be a small amount of mold on top of the water. Carefully scoop it off. Rinse pickle in cold water and enjoy! I can taste them already!
