Quick and Tasty Pickles
These quick and easy refrigerator pickles are delicious. You don't have to wait long; your friends and family will eat them all. The new plastic lids are recommended for fridge pickles. They are easy to use, and you don't have to wait for them to suck down and seal. There is nothing better than food that leaves people wanting more. You can serve them at home or take them to a party. Wherever you serve them, you will be the talk of the neighborhood. You won't need a canner either. So, let's clean the canning jars and make some pickles!
- Clean quart jars or plastic containers
- Medium saucepan
- Plastic lids, quart size
- Vegetable slicer or sharp knife
- Cutting board
- Large bowl for cucumber
- Measuring spoons and cups
|Prep time||Cook time||Ready in||Yields|
3 1/2 quarts
- 14 medium cucumbers, sliced or quartered
- 6 garlic cloves, cut in half
- 6 dill, stalks
- 3 tablespoons dill seed
- 3 cups vinegar
- 3 cups water
- 6 tablespoons pickling salt
- Sterilize jars on the stove in boiling water. In a medium saucepan, add water, vinegar and coarse salt. Stir and bring to a full boil. leave on the stove on low till needed.
- Cut off the ends of the cucumbers first. Slice up all the cucumbers length-wise. Carefully take jars out of the water bath and place a garlic clove and 1/2 tablespoon of dill seed in each jar. Now fill each jar with cucumbers and add another 1/2 of the dill seed and a stem of dill, and garlic clove.
- Once all ingredients are in the jars and pour the vinegar brine into each jar till just above the bottom ring of the jar. Remember to leave an air space. Place a plastic lid on each jar, but do not tighten it. Let jars sit until cool, and then tighten the lids. Place in the fridge.
- In only 3 to 5 days, these pickles will be ready to eat. They will keep in the fridge for about 2 months, but I don't think they will last long. You will have them eaten before that.
1/2 tablespoon pepper corn
Apple cider vinegar
10 pearl onions
1/3 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 yellow onion
