Dill pickles are easy to make at home. Try to use in-season pickling cucumbers.

  • Remove from  heat, cool slightly, then pour over Jared pickles.
  • Place the dill and cucumbers in a large jar just large enough to hold them and the brine.
  • Pour the brine over the cucumbers.
  • Place in the refrigerator for 3 weeks or until they are completely flavored by the herbs and spices.
