These Kosher Pickles taste like the ones you can pick up at any Jewish Deli in New York! They are garlic dill pickles. Emphasis on garlic!
Are Kosher Pickles Actually Kosher?
According to Wikipedia, “A “kosher” dill pickle is not necessarily kosher in the sense that it has been prepared in accordance with Jewish dietary law. Rather, it is a pickle made in the traditional manner of Jewish New York City pickle makers, with generous addition of garlic and dill to a natural salt brine.”
So it is with these pickles, they are not kosher, per se, only made with lots of garlic and dill!
Kosher Pickles can be cold packed or traditional water bath canned. As with all cold packed canned goods, these must be stored in the refrigerator and will have a shorter shelf life than their water bath canned counterparts. If you are in a hurry, just cold pack them. Just know that you should use them up within 3 months, or so.
How to Make Kosher Pickles
- Wash pickling cucumbers well.
- Cut spears, or slices, depending on what shape you prefer.
- Peel garlic.
- Measure vinegar. Heat to boiling.
- Sterilize jars. See here for different sterilization methods.
- Add cucumbers to jars.
- For spears, lay jars on their sides to fill them.
- Add spices.
- Fill jars with hot liquid, leaving 1/2″ headspace, then add garlic and dill.
Wipe edges of jars with damp paper towel. Place hot lid on jar. Affix bands and fingertip tighten. If water bath canning, place in canning pot. Low boil for 15 minutes for pints. 20 minutes for quarts. If cold packing, allow to cool to room temperature and refrigerate.
