Illinois State Fair — Mrs. Wages Kosher Dill Pickles

My 19-year-old son James loves the Mrs. Wages® pickles so I made a point of making them for him this year. We purchased pickles at a church sale for several years and didn't know what made them different. (He didn't prefer the ones I usually made!) I finally determined it was the Mrs. Wages® mix, so he was very excited that we could finally make our own!

1Sterilize pint jars. Wash cucumbers and remove blossoms; drain. Leave whole, cut into spears or slice.

2Combine Mrs. Wages® Quick Process Kosher Dill Pickles Mix, vinegar and water into a large nonreactive pot. Bring mixture just to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture dissolves.

3Pack cucumbers into sterilized jars, leaving ½-inch headspace. Evenly divide hot pickling liquid among the packed jars, leaving ½-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles and cap each jar as it is filled. If more liquid is needed for proper headspace, add a mix of 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water.

4Process pints 10 minutes in a boiling water bath canner. Test jars for airtight seals according to manufacturer’s directions. If jars do not completely seal, refrigerate and consume within two weeks. Product is ready to eat after 24 hours. Before serving, chill to enhance flavor and crispness.


9-11 lbs pickling cucumbers

3 ⅓ cups commercial white vinegar (5% acidity)

7 ⅓ cups water

1 pouch Mrs. Wages® Quick Process Kosher Dill Pickles Mix
