These pickles don't contain vinegar, using citric acid and salt for pickling instead.
10 c. water
1/2 c. salt
5 tsp. citric acid
Bring this mixture to boil.
In each jar which has been sterilized put:
2 cloves garlic
2 heads dill
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 grape leaf
Pack cucumbers in jars as tightly as possible.
Pour boiling brine into jars until filled. Put into canner pot that contains water that was just boiling and has been removed from heat. Place lid on canner. Allow jars to set in canner until cool.
*If you are concerned about the jars sealing, the jars can be boiled in bather bath canner for 3 - 4 minutes.
