Granny Mack would make pickled dilly-beans and carrots and they were AMAZING! I don’t remember her ever actually making dill pickles though. My mom – your Granny S. would make them most summers. My mom’s pickles turned out amazing, crisp and crunchy with the perfect sour bite…most of the time. I have tried to make dill pickles following her recipe.
Major FLOP! They were a funky colour, mushy and yucky… not nice.
I have found the PERFECT dill pickle recipe! I have made this recipe many times (Lochlan you LOVE these). Every single time I have made this recipe – it has turned out perfect. Which makes sense as the recipe belongs to one of my all-time favorite Chefs Alton Brown.
If you are looking for a recipe for… well anything, and you find one that Alton Brown makes – USE IT! It will be perfect!
This is his recipe for Old Fashion Fermented Dill Pickles I pretty much follow it exactly…. why mess with perfection? The man knows his stuff.
Lochlan this is really for you. Peanut Butter and Dill Pickles …. two smells that will always make me think of your toddler years!
