Question Polish Pickles

Anybody have a GREAT recipe for Polish Pickles? A recipe past down in a Polish family would be ideal.

This is an old Polish recipe of our friend's grandmother. According to the family tradition she made the best pickles.

Pickles
2 kg of cucumbers

marinate:
0.5 l of apple vinegar 6%
2.5l of water
3 tablespoons of salt
30-36 dkg of sugar (This is too sweet for us. I add less than a half of this.)
Boil all the ingredients of the marinate and cool it.

Put in every jar (0,9l): a bay leaf, a garlic clove cut in half, 2-3 slices of the carrot, two allspice berries, dill (a small umbel with seeds or a piece of the stalk), mustard seeds (on the top of a teaspoon), a few onion feathers. And: if you like, a piece of sweet or hot pepper.
Next put the cucumbers in the jar, pour the cold marinate and pasteurise until the cucumbers change color to olive color.

Hallo Dorota. Thank you for the special pickle recipe! I've been eating Polish Dill Pickles imported from Poland which are really tasty. They are sweet and have a sprig of dill in the jar, so your recipe sounds perfect. They used the little gherkin cucumbers, but does your recipe works good with slightly larger ones?

dustdevil, I am sure the recipe will work with bigger cucumbers too. I do not use little gherkin cucumbers for pickles. It is not by choice. They do not sell them at our farmer's market. I use biger ones, even 10-12 cm long. The same cucumbers I use for fermented pickles.

Worth, I buy pickles from time to time too, but I like to have some home made pickles in my pantry,

Thank you Dorota, i'll be using your recipe a lot, looking for sweet Polish Pickle recipe with less vinegar for a long time. I'll use it for many other things starting tomatoes and mushrooms... Thank you Dustdevil for asking the big question, Dorota and Marsha for finding and sharing great recipes!
