Easiest Kosher Dill Pickle Chips and Stackers

Just like my opinion on pickled okra, there are some things that shouldn't be rocket science. If you see any bags of these at Wal-Mart, go ahead and buy them up. They disappear quickly and you know how Wal-Mart is, they'll be putting out Halloween stuff before canning season has begun and you will be out of luck. Follow the directions on the package using 9-11 lbs. of pickling cucumbers. We visited the Farmer's Market and pulled as many similar sized (and straight) cucumbers as possible. Using our mandolin slicer, we sliced half into chips and the other half as stackers to be used on pannini sandwhiches, burgers, etc. I mixed the seasoning with7-1/3 cups of water and 3-1/3 cups of vinegar, poured the hot liquid over the packed jars and sealed. This will save us a bunch. The way we go through pickles.


  1. I know this is an old post, but I hope you see it. I have 2 questions. 1st, you say you add 7-3/4 cup water and 3-1/3 cup water...was one of those supposed to be vinegar? 2nd, do you water bath these or just seal and hope for the seal from the hot liquid? I love love love pickles and this seems SO easy that even *I* could probably do it :) Thanks!

    1. Becky,

      Thank you for noticing that!! Yes, the 3-1/3 was supposed to be vinegar. I have since updated. And yes, I did process them in a water bath. Thank you for following Man, That Stuff Is Good!!
