These Refrigerator Dill Pickles are my favorite. I tried 3 different recipes this year and these were definitely the best. This recipe was given to me by my childhood friends, Dawn and Danielle. I love this Refrigerator Dill Pickle Recipe because the pickles have a crisp, fresh taste. You can adjust the dill and garlic to your liking. I made mine in gallon glass jars, and stored some in quart jars for convenience. I'm sure you could make your pickles in either quart or gallon jars. My sister has even made hers in a gallon ice cream bucket with lid.
This is my new Go-To pickle recipe. If you are harvesting your pickled cucumbers soon, I urge you you to try this recipe. These are some of the best Refrigerator Dill Pickles you will ever try.

Cucumbers, sliced to your preference. (I enjoy chips, and Dawn has tried spears and likes them too.)
11 cups water

1/2 cup canning salt
5 tsp fresh garlic minced
8 dill heads (I didn't have 8 so used heads and minced fresh dill)
2 TB pickling spice
Bring water, vinegar, and salt to a boil and boil for 3 minutes.
Let cool to room temperature.
In gallon jar layer garlic, dill heads, cucumbers, pickling spice. Repeat layering ingredients until jar is full and ingredients are gone.
