Quick Pickled Cucumbers

A quick pickle recipe often comes in handy when you're needing to spruce up a meal or simply have a delicious snack with the abundance of spring and summer produce. You can pickle just about anything you'd like with just 10 minutes and a few ingredients.


I find myself mostly pickling cucumbers and adding them to:

  • Sloppy Joes

  • With anything BBQ

  • Hamburgers & Cheeseburgers

  • Gourmet Hot Dogs

  • Salads



HOW TO MAKE PICKLED CUCUMBERS


Ingredients:

  • Water

  • Vinegar

  • Sugar

  • Salt

  • Something to pickle - Carrots, okra, cucumbers, asparagus, Jalapeños, onions, etc

  • Fresh dill

  • Whole Garlic cloves

  • Peppercorns

  • Chili Flakes


Directions:

In a small saucepan, bring water, vinegar, sugar and salt to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool for 10-15 minutes.


Slice up vegetables or item you'd like to pickle. Stuff it all into a pint sized jar.


Add in the peppercorns, garlic, dill and chili flakes (optional).


Pour the brine into the jar until liquid has covered the vegetables.


Cover with a lid and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours.


Enjoy! Pickled items will last for a week or two in the fridge.


BONUS - once you've devoured the first batch, you can simply reuse the brine and place another batch back into the jar. It will be a milder pickle outcome, but a simple shortcut to try.
