Dill pickle canning season is from the August first until the middle of September. Dill pickles are the first memory I have of my Grandma Ella canning food. She was standing in the kitchen putting grape leaves and a clove a garlic in the bottom of a canning jar. It was the grape leaves that got my attention.
Canning dill pickles passed my momma by but it became a yearly tradition in my own home. I never went a year without canning Cucumber Dill Pickles.
Sour pickles are my kids and grands favorite. It’s a really toss up between dills and homemade sweet pickles for me.
Rather than explain the entire canning procedure and dill pickle canning recipe here… I want you to click on to my sister site… Insightful Nana where the entire dill pickle canning method is presented in detail.
My grand kids love to pull a whole dill pickle from the jar and eat it wrapped in a paper towel. For Sunday dinner, I dress up the dill pickles by placing them in fancy relish dishes. I have antique relish dishes that I love to show off.
Try canning dill pickles… they are sooo easy and great to serve for the first time at Thanksgiving.
Happy Canning And Preserving!

P.S. Having genuine dill pickles to serve your guests will impress them. They may remember old times when their grandma served up sour pickles to them.
