{Homemade Dill Pickles}

Sunday, August 08, 2010

We just got done making our 1,129th batch of these this summer. This recipe is as easy as placing the ingredients in a jar, waiting a day, and then stuffing the face yo mama gave you.

4 Kirby cucumbers (about 1 lb) sliced into coins
3/4 cup white wine vinegar
3/4 cup hot tap water
1/4 small Vidalia onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, smashed
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon dill seed
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
1 bay leaf

1. Place the cucumbers in a 1-quart jar (0r half-pint jars) or some other container with a lid.

2. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, onion, garlic, sugar, dill seed, peppercorns, bay leaf, salt, and 3/4 cup hot tap water. Stir until the sugar dissolves.

3. Pour the vinegar mixture into the jar with the cucumbers, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 day before serving. The pickles will last up to 1 week.

I'm dying to make these! Do you have to boil the jars at all, or not necessarily since you eat them right away? And where can I get a krinkle cutter? So much cooler that way!

nope, these are refrigerator pickles so no boiling involved! my dad sent me a krinkle cutter that he found at a flea market, but i'm sure you could find one at your local kitchen / gadget store. lemme know how they turn out! xoxo

I made these shortly after you posted them originally, but have been into it again these past few weeks. Maybe it's cause I'm pregnant, but I've been eating a jar every couple days!
I'd love to figure out a way to use this recipe for fermentation too. Thanks!
