Anyone have any good recipes?

I got a big bunch of baby dill at the Farmer's Market. Anyone know how to make good pickles?

    These probably aren't what you're looking for, but I remember my mom making them when I was young. They're very good!

    Cinnamon Pickles
    by Ann, 6/22/98


    Lg. cucumbers
    2 c. pickling lime
    8 1/2 qt. water
    1 c. vinegar
    1 tbsp. alum
    1 bottle red food coloring
    2 c. vinegar
    2 c. water 12 c. sugar
    12 cinnamon sticks
    2 c. cinnamon "red hots"

    Peel, if desired, and slice about 1/4 inch thick. Take out seeds. The larger the cucumber, the better. Two gallons cucumber rings, 2 cups lime, and 8 1/2 quarts water; soak 24 hours. Drain and wash, then cover with cold water and soak 3 hours. Mix 1 cup vinegar, alum and red food coloring. Then add enough water to cover cucumbers and simmer 2 hours. Drain and discard liquid. Heat and pour over cucumbers: 2 cups vinegar, 2 cups water, sugar, cinnamon sticks and "red hots". DON'T SKIMP. For the next 2 morning, drain off and reheat liquid and cinnamon sticks. DO NOT BOIL. Pour back on cucumbers and keep covered. Third morning, reheat cucumbers with liquid. Pack in sterilized jars and seal.
