IntroductionThe wonderful thing about refrigerator pickles is that they only take about 5 minutes to prepare, and require ZERO steps of the traditional canning process. A friend gave me this recipe and I just thought I would share it.

1.5 cup (8 fl oz) Water, tap
3 tbsp Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar (white or apple cider vinegar will work)
1.5 tbsp Salt (either Kosher or Pickling Salt - Do not use iodized table salt for this recipe)
2 tsp Peppercorns, whole black - McCormick
5 clove Garlic, peeled
6 sprigs Dill weed, fresh
1 Bay Leaf
280 grams Cucumber (with peel) ***1 large English hothouse seedless cucumber, sliced into rounds or spears (a large one is
about 7 1/4 to 8 1/2 inches length and weighs about 280g or 9.9oz)
there is no cooking time - I just put in 2160 minutes for cook time since that is equal to one full day for refrigeration
NOTE: Unfortunately, these are very high in sodium, I have been thinking of trying to make them but reducing the amount of salt used in the recipe since I am trying to avoid large amounts of sodium these days.
Add the sliced cucumbers to the jar. **you can either slice your cucumber into rounds or spears - your choice. Then place the lid on the jar, and shake to combine.
Refrigerate for at least 2 days before eating, although you can totally dive in to them before that time if you like. The pickles will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Serving Size: 8 servings

I have only made them twice now - but I agree they smell so good and I love that with this recipe I can make a smaller amount so I am not eating too many at one time. So happy you enjoyed the recipe.
