2 gallons whole cucumbers, thoroughly washed
Garlic cloves, celery sticks, hot green peppers, and fresh dill as desired
2 quarts water
1 quart cider vinegar
1 cup salt
Pack cucumbers into jars along with garlic, celery, peppers and dill.
In a sauce pan combine water, vinegar and salt. Heat mixture to boiling and boil for 5 minutes. Pour immediately over cumbers in jars and seal.
Note: Martha says whole dill pickles are so popular with her family that she uses gallon jars for this recipe.
