Can you make dill pickles at home that taste just like store bought pickles?
Tammy from Vonore, TN
Yes if you use fresh dill. If you would like my recipe please e-mail me and I'll send it to you.
My answer is no. I've canned for years and tried every recipe under the sun. I don't think any really taste like most store bought brands. Now, there are a couple store canned varieties that taste like home-canned. Mrs Wages has a few mixes out that are the closest I could find that taste like the store ones. It really doesn't bother me, I just like pickles, and home canning them gives me lots of variety. My son is pickier and won't eat the home-canned ones. Hope you find one that works for you.
