The new plastic lids make pickling even easier. They are also better for fridge use.

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. Let's clean the canning jars and make us some pickles.

  2. Medium sauce pan
  3. Plastic lids, Quart size
  4. Tongs
  5. Vegetable slicer or sharp knife
  6. Cutting board

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 3 1/2 Quarts


  • 14 Medium Cucumbers, Sliced or quartered
  • 6 Garlic cloves, cut in half
  • 6 Dill, stalks
  • 3 Tbsp Dill seed
  • 3 Cups Vinegar
  • 3 Cups Water
  • 6 Tbsp Pickling salt


  1. Sterilize jars on the stove in boiling water. In the medium sauce pan, add water, vinegar and course salt. Stir and bring to a full boil. leave on the stove on low till needed.
  2. Cut off the ends of cucumbers first. Slice up all the cucumbers, length wise. Carfully take jars out of the water bath and place a garlic clove, 1/2 tbsp dill seed in each jar. Now fill each jar with cucumbers add another 1/2 of the dill seed and a stem of dill, and garlic clove.
  3. Once all ingredients are in the jars and pour the vinegar brine into each jar, till just above the the bottom ring of the jar. Remember to leave an air space. Place a plastic lid on each jar, but do not tighten. Let jars sit until cool and then tighten the lids. Place in the fridge.
  4. 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.

      They are really good and we were able to eat them after only being in the fridge for 5 days. By week 2 we were already on to the next jar.
