The sons have a love hate relationship with pickles.
They either love them or hate them with two for and two against.
I bolster the for them side since I am all for their salty, briny taste!
We’ve always got a family size jar in the fridge just for when one of us needs a pickle fix.
Or at least we did.
Then I got a deal from our local farmers market that resulted in us getting several pounds of free cucumbers and I couldn’t let those beauties go to waste.
Fortunately, I found a way to make an easy, refrigerator pickle with no complicated ingredients or methods involved. I’m looking at you pickling spice!
With a few easy ingredients and three short days later we were busy crunching down on the
fruits pickles of our labor.
To make these you’ll need:
- Cucumbers– You can slice them into spears or slices. We normally do jars of both.
- Vinegar– Use white vinegar instead of any other variety.
- Water– To make the base of the brine.
- Sugar– To cut the acid.
- Salt– Go for sea salt instead of table salt.
- Seasonings– Garlic cloves, fresh dill and peppercorns.
How to Make
How long will they stay good in the fridge?
