I haven't found that to be at all necessary, but it's interesting.

Interesting article I stumbled upon on beer and pickle pairings.

Made these this weekend. Did not have any dill seed on hand so I subbed in caraway seeds. Should be interesting.

Those pickled hop shoots turned out fairly good (considering how nasty raw hop shoots are!)

I may make a jar of just those since I need to cut back some more shoots that are growing in places that I don't want them.

Ive never canned anything in my life, but this seemed easy enough! Pics of the process... Boiling the jars, measured out spices, combined the spices in one ramekin, Boiled the brine and added some Two Hearted. I put the cukes in the jars, divided the spices in half and sprinkled into the two jars. Poured the brine over them and sealed em up! Cant wait to try these!!

Update! These were amazing. Ended up with three pint jars. Plowed through one jar in one night. Look forward to making them again, this time with dill seed rather than caraway. Going to dial back the spices and salt just a hair this time. Will also try it with white viegar rather than the cider vinegar.

Also, mine came out with a nice crisp to them.

Has anyone done slices rather than the quarters?

Nice! Good to hear. I think my wife wants me to make some as slices for putting on sandwiches and burgers, and possibly for making some fried pickles with.
