I'm a pickle newbie-need some suggestions/help

15 years ago

I have decided I want to try making pickles. I was at the farmers market today, and there were 5, 10 and 20 lbs bags of pickling cukes. I almost bought a 5lb bag, but decided to wait and figure out what I needed first.

I have a Heinz Pickling pamphlet and an old Ortho Gardening Guide for Pickling. Somewhere I saw a recipe(and now I can't remember)that cukes, brine, dill heads and peeled garlic. Can anyone recommend a recipe such as that? Also, I'll be using quart jars...if I were to buy 5 lbs, how many quart jars(approx, I realize)would that make?

TIA very much
