  • Pack cucumber spears vertically in jar tightly together.
  • Pour hot brine over the pickles to within 1" of the rim and store in the refrigerator or, if canning, process in a waterbath for 10 minutes and follow all normal canning procedures.


Optionally, you can use Pickling Spice for flavor as well.
