Quick Garlic Dill Pickles 

Yesterday I went out into the garden and was delighted to see I could pick my first harvest! Whoa Hoo!!!!!

Although I only got a handful of raspberries and enough lettuce to make an awesome salad for lunch, I did get a bunch of cucumbers, fresh dill and garlic! What was a girl to do? Make refrigerator dill pickles of course!!! 


I will never can pickles. I just don’t see the point to cooking them and turning them soggy. Refrigerator pickles are super fresh, crunchy and only take a couple days to become delishous! They last up to 12 weeks in the fridge (if you don’t eat them by then) and you can play around with flavours since they are so easy to make! This jar only took me 15 minutes!! 

Quick Garlic Dill Pickles (makes 1 quart)

  • 3-5 small pickling cucumbers (enough to pack them in there good)
  • 2 chopped cloves of garlic
  • Fresh dill, or dill seed
  • 1 tsp peppercorns
  • 1 tsp crushed peppers 
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar

Just put everything into a jar, top up with water to the rim and let sit in the fridge for 2 or 3 days and enjoy!!

This is a starter recipe for me. Depending on your taste, play around with mustard seed, regular vinegar, other spices, etc. It is so easy to make these, you can make a jar in less than 15 minutes, so get creative!!
