Default Not Low-Carb, but a great pickle!

As I mentioned above, these are NOT low-carb - but it is one of my favorite pickling recipes - similar to the sliced hamburger pickle - in fact, if you have a "crinkle" cutter, that would add a nice touch. The slices are quite crunchy, too.

Reduced-Sodium Sliced Dill Pickles Yield: About 8 pints

4 lbs. (3-5) Pickling Cucumbers
6 cups vinegar (5 percent)
6 cups sugar
2 tablespoon canning or pickling salt
1 teas. celery seed
1 teas mustard seed
2 large onions, thinly sliced
8 heads fresh dill (or large sprigs)

Wash cucumbers. Trim 1/16 inch slice off each end and discard. Cut cucumbers into inch slices. Combine vinegar, sugar, salt, celery and mustard seeds in large saucepan. Bring mixture to boiling.
Place 2 slices onion and dill head on bottom of each sterile canning jar. Fill jars with cucumber slices, leaving inch head space. Add 1 slice of onion and dill head on top. Pour hot pickling solution over cucumbers, leaving inch headspace. Remove air bubbles, wipe rims, adjust lids, and process pints jars in boiling water bath for 15 minutes.
