Tart and spicy dills are popular but when you want a sweet dill nothing else will do. This recipe makes a slightly spicy, slightly sweet dill that just might become your favorite pickle.
We use quart jars in this recipe but you can use pint size if that's what you have. Also you may use regular slicing cucumbers if pickling cucumbers are unavailable. This recipe makes a nice sweet dill but if you include the optional crushed red pepper flakes, it will get a little spicy over time. We liked the "sweet" balanced with "spicy", but if you prefer traditional sweet dills you can omit the crushed red pepper.
You may slice the cucumbers or use whole cucumbers. You will be able to get more in a jar if you slice the cucumbers but some people just prefer whole pickles. Your choice.
