Paleo Dill Pickles – Gran’s Sweet Dill

  • Author: Cherise's G-ma (with permission) -


Slightly sweet classic dill.


  • 5lb pickling cucumbers
  • Ice
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 cups vinegar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup sea salt
  • 1tbsp pickling spice
  • 6 sprigs of dill
  • 12 cloves of garlic
  • 6 jars, quart size with lids


  1. Take cucumbers, wash and put in an ice bath in the fridge overnight (Crisp cucumbers make crisp pickles, no one likes a soggy pickle).
  2. Wash and sterilize jars, place 2 peeled cloves of garlic and a sprig of dill in each jar.
  3. Combine water, vinegar, pickling spice and salt, bring to a boil.
  4. Pack the pickles into the jars, careful not to bruise them but you want the jars full or you will run out of brine.
  5. Once brine has boiled and salt has dissolved, pour over packed jars, and lid right away.
  6. Immerse in boiling water and boil for 15-20 min or until they turn slightly yellow.
  7. Remove and let cool on a thick towel, you will hear the lids pop as they seal. Any non-sealers need to be refrigerated and used right away.
