Grandma Weisbeck’s Dill Pickles

Hello all! Well, ONE of my Grandma’s parties has wound down. SO I finally found some time to post a quick recipe from my Grandma’s collection.


img_4330One of my favorite meals my Grandma cooked for us was fried potatoes, homemade German sausage and her dill pickles. Of course the cucumbers and dill were always fresh from her own garden.They were amazing…of course I’m a bit biased. 🙂 My Grandma would give my mom several jars, and my friend Bobbie and I used to sneak some from my mom’s fridge. Bobbie loved these pickles…I think everyone did.

It’s been a long day so I won’t embellish with a lot of talk of memories. Here is her dill pickle recipe.

  • 16 cups water
  • 1 cup pickling salt
  • 2 cups vinegar

Bring all 3 ingredients to a boil.

Wash cucumbers and pack them in jars. In each jar place the following:

  • Dill
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon pickling spice

Pour boiling water over mixture in jars and seal. Put in a 200 degree oven for 1 hour.

Well, there you have it. I hope you enjoy them! I have a few of her other recipes, I’ve been given the okay from my Mom to post here. I’ll try to post them tomorrow, however, we will be heading to Herried, my Grandmother’s hometowm, for another celebration. So, if you don’t hear from me tomorrow, I’ll be posting sometime on Monday! Have a great weekend everyone!
