Description

Quick and easy pickles, no preserving necessary. Great for the cucumbers from your garden.

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Cucumbers
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 cup Vinegar
  • 1 cup Water
  • ⅓ cups Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Dill, Dried
  • 1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 pinch Coriander
  • 6 whole Peppercorns

Preparation

Use cucumbers with no wax residue on the peels.

Slice cucumbers in 1/4″-1/8″ slices.

Cut garlic cloves in quarters, then smash them a bit.

Put cucumbers and garlic in a bowl.

Heat vinegar (I like apple cider vinegar, but white works also), water, sugar, salt, dill, red pepper flakes, coriander and peppercorns in a small sauce pan until sugar and salt are dissolved.*

Pour over the cucumbers and garlic.

Cover and let marinate in refrigerator for at least two hours.

Serve cold.

* We don’t use very much salt at my house. You may want more salt. Or more sugar. This recipe is just basic, you can play with the ingredients to make them work for you.

These were “fantabulous” as my kiddos would say. Very easy to make and they were a big hit with everyone. I will definitely make this recipe again in the future-it beats the good ‘ole cucumbers and vinegar recipe by far!

Thanks for all the pickle love, everyone!

I just made these again after a year and I’m still happy with the recipe, and glad that all of you are, too!

My first time making pickles and they turned out pretty great! Husband is getting quite a large yield of cucumbers from his garden box this year, so this is a great way to use them up.

I only had fresh dill, so I used about double the amount called for. The dill flavor was mellow and complemented the garlic very well. I found the apple cider vinegar to be a bit too sweet-tart and over powering for my tastes, so I may decrease it a bit or go halfsies with white vinegar next time. Otherwise, a delicious pickle that tastes GREAT on sandwiches.

Jessiet83- I’d definitely keep them in the fridge and not on the counter.

As for canning them, maybe someone else can help us? I haven’t canned pickles in years.

These are so good! Definitely not a true, classic pickle but delicious none-the-less. My husband frequently comes to bed smelling strongly of garlic because he snacked on these!

PERFECTION! I had one cucumber to use up and decided to try this recipe. After letting it marinate for 2 hours in the fridge, I tried them and couldn’t stop eating them until they were gone.
