Super Easy Frig Pickles

Posted

From CSA Member Joseph Cantor

Ingredients:
– 2 cups cold water
– filtered or bottled is best
– 1/3 cup white wine vinegar (avoid balsamic or other vinegars, they just don’t work as 
well)
– 1 tsp sugar
- 2 Tbsp pickling/Canning salt
- a handful of peppercorns
– ground pepper to taste
– 3 cloves garlic chopped rough
– Several sprigs of fresh dill
– Canning jars or mason jars or even plastic zip
-top bags

Preparation:
1. Mix water, vinegar, salt and sugar in a bowl. Make sure the sugar and salt is mostly 
dissolved
2. Wash and slice 2 medium sized cucumbers (or 1 really large one)
3. Arrange cucumber slices in your container of choice (I like to use canning jars)
4. Add liquid from above and a portion of the peppercorns, ground pepper, garlic and dill 
to each container
5. Refrigerate

. The pickles will be ready to begin eating the next day if you like mild flavor, otherwise 
the flavor will intesify each day you leave them in the frig.

Variations:
Feel free to add other spices to the mix, such as red pepper flakes for a 
spicy pickle, Basil or even cloves make for interesting flavors as well.
