Introduction

The 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.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    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)

Tips

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.


Directions

Add the water, vinegar, salt, peppercorns, garlic, dill and bay leaf to a large (1-quart) jar -- or if you prefer to make it in smaller jars then divide the mixture evenly between two small (1-pint) jars -- and stir to combine.

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
