Refrigerator Pickles

Refrigerator Pickles

I want to thank my friend Joan for sharing this SUPER EASY recipe for refrigerator pickles and a jar of her pickles with me! She even gave me fresh cucumbers from her garden so that I could make these myself!! We love Claussen’s pickles and now we can make our own!

This recipe for refrigerator pickles doesn’t require too many ingredients, and would be a fun activity to do with your kids especially if you have a garden and an abundance of cucumbers. You can only make so many cucumber and tomato salads :)!

The recipe is from Annie’s Eats blog.  I just used Himalayan pink salt instead of kosher salt.

I used all different size jars because that’s what I had on hand, and cut up as many cucumbers as would fit in the jars. I also cut some in spears, some plain round and some crinkle cut. You can do whatever appeals to you. That’s why I think this would be fun to do with kids because they could all do something different!

Here’s what you’ll need for your refrigerator pickles:

For approximately 3-4 16 oz jars of pickles:

3-4 Good Sized Cucumbers

Himalayan Pink Salt OR Kosher Salt

1 bunch of fresh dill

3-4 Garlic gloves minced

3 Cups of Water

6 TBSP Distilled White Vinegar

3 TBSP Salt

What To Do:

Mince the garlic

In a measuring cup(so it will be easy to pour), combine the vinegar, salt, and water.  Stir until most of the salt is dissolved. I used the pink salt and it didn’t all dissolve, so I just added some to the jars at the end. As they sit in the fridge the salt will dissolve.

Get all your jars lined up and ready Wash your cucumbers

Put some garlic and dill in the bottoms of each jar – I used about 1 clove per jar and several sprigs of dillPlace your cut cucumbers into the jars, filling the jar but not packing it too tightly.

We love dill!!Refrigerator Pickles

Cover all your jars and leave in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks before you start eating them. These would make great gifts for the pickle lovers in your family.

I actually leave them for a couple of weeks. You can check the crisp/crunchiness of them to see when they’re to your liking.
