The other day I made a delicious sandwich with a wonderful fruit salad. There was something missing though! It’s funny how a crunchy pickle added to a sandwich is like adding a cherry on top of a hot fudge sundae. The two go hand and hand. So I set out to make a crunchy, delicious dill pickle. The problem with commercial pickles are that they are loaded with the wrong kinds of salt and generally have ingredients that are not so healthy for you. Try these pickles. They are so good, and quite healthy for you. You will quickly be going back for a second one!

    If I didn’t have a pot high enough to have the water come up 1 inch over the top of the jar in the water bath, is that okay?  I put the jars in a pot a let it boil for 15 minutes…the water came up to the neck of the mason jars..
