My grandmother and mother used to make them all the time. I refuse to eat store bought dills. I'll see if I can get the recipe for you. I know it has dill, mustard seeds, birds eye peppers, vinegar, salt, water. I will try to find out the exact directions on how to make them. I used to help my grandmother for years make them.

We make lots of bread and butter picles every year. We add jalapeno peppers to them though. Some people call these good & evil's. Very good, sweet and hot.

R O R 4x4; sorry it took so long.my wife make great dills. we make about 25 to 30 jars a year.

you need:
small cucumbers the smaller ones (3") are better.about 1/4 bushel
1 gal water
5 cups white vinegar
3/4 cup pickling salt
some hot peppers
fresh dill (can use dill seeds, but fresh is much better)
fresh garlic
alum

wash and drain you cucks and fresh dill
sterialize jars
pack cucks and dill into jars ; add one hot pepper and one clove garlic to each jar.
put packed jars into oven heated to 350 degrees for 10 to 15 min.or untill to hot to handle.
bring water , salt ,and vinegar to a rolling boil.add pinch of alum to each jar.
fill jars with boiling liquid,seal jars , set aside.keepthe liquid boiling while you fill all the jsrs.

this makes 7 or 8 quarts.

let set about a week before you use.
