Congratulations to the Homemade Ozone Pickle Company!


Last Friday, pickles created by Will and Ozone students soundly defeated Mt. Olive Pickles in the Pickle Taste Test Finals. Here is the recipe for the champion pickles:


  • 4 fresh dill heads
  • pickling cucumbers
  • 8 1/2 cups water
  • 3 1/2 cups white vinegar
  • 1 cup kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  1. Top and tail cucumber and cut to preference
  2. Place cucumbers in a bowl of ice water for 8 hours minimum
  3. Dice garlic and add to a large heavy bottomed pot with water, vinegar, salt, & sugar
  4. Bring to a boil
  5. In your dishwasher, place empty jars and run on a sanitize cycle (a cycle that runs for a minimum of 30 minutes over 180%)
  6. Allow jars to cool and stuff them with the cucumbers from your ice bath and your dill.
  7. Fill each jar with your boiled brine.
  8. Fit each jar with a lid and refrigerate for 4 weeks.
