Polish Dill Pickles Made in a Crock

“While my Polish grandmother canned the world's best dill pickles, she made "crock" pickles to use up the over abundance of cucumbers. They were our favorites. I make them in smaller amounts using the ratio of ingredients to the amount of cucumbers. Leave out the grape leaves if you can't find them. Prep time does not include fermentation time.”
