Russian Dill Pickles

This a polish recipe and I am sure there are native Russian variants of this recipe. In reality, a pickle is a pickle, and all of Eastern Europe eats variants of this very same pickle and how it came to be known as a Minnesota recipe is a mystery to me but rather than debate the heritage of this Russian dill pickles recipe, enjoy this flavorful treat.
