Cold Pack Refrigerator Dill Pickle Recipe

Posted by Sam Wigness, May 15, 2018. Recipe created by Duris' Cucumber Farm, modified and perfected by Bob K.

Many Wells Medina Nursery customers not only enjoy getting their hands dirty in the garden, but also enjoy making a mess in kitchen as well. I was lucky enough to meet Bob K. while he was buying cucumber starts in April. We soon found ourselves having a pickle conversation, and Bob offered to share his favorite recipe for spicy Dill pickles.
