Homemade Pickles

Pucker up for the Best Homemade Refrigerator Pickles we ever tried! These zesty garlic dills are quick and easy to make, and also pack a punch of flavor.

It’s that time of year again. Fresh produce is in abundance. There is nothing better than fresh vegetables and fruit that have been allowed to ripen on the vine until they are at the peak of perfection.

Sure, nowadays you can (almost) always find whatever you want at the grocery store, but the flavor is not always there when certains types of produce are out of season.

I notice the biggest flavor difference in tomatoes and cucumbers. I love canning my produce, but on really hot days, who wants to boil large pots of water and steam up the kitchen? Not me.

Homemade Pickle Ingredients

Here’s what you’re going to need for this recipe…

  • Pickling Cucumbers – These are not regular cucumbers! Look for shorter cucumbers, with bumpy skin.
  • Vidalia Onion – This is a type of sweet onion grown in Georgia. If you can’t find these, just go with a regular sweet onion.
  • Fresh Dill Weed – You’ll know this produce item by the distinct smell. It also gives these pickles their signature dill taste.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar – This has a mellow fruity flavor that melds well with the spices that go along with this recipe.
  • Water – To fill the jar to the top.
  • Garlic – You can’t go wrong with garlic!
  • Pickling Salt – If you can’t find pickling salt, use kosher salt instead.
  • Granulated Sugar – This balances the savoriness of the pickles but doesn’t overpower it.
  • Whole Black Peppercorns – Whole black peppercorns are used instead of ground pepper for a milder taste.
  • Whole Yellow Mustard Seeds – Super small, yet these seeds are packed with bold flavor!
  • Red Pepper Flakes – Adjust the spice level to your liking by adding more or less to your pickles.

How To Make Pickles

This recipe really could not be more simple…

I use the small pickling cucumbers with the thick bumpy skin. They hold up well and stay crunchy. It doesn’t take too many cucumbers to fill a jar either; I was able to fit three 4-inch long sliced cucumbers in a pint-sized jar.

Zesty garlic dill pickles are my favorite. However, you can adjust this recipe to your own tastebuds to make it less garlicky or even sweeter.

Refrigerator Pickles

Another beauty of Best Homemade Refrigerator Pickles is you can put them in any clean jar with a lid.

You don’t need to buy canning jars because you don’t actually can them. Simply pack the jars with cucumbers, a bit of onion, and dill. Then make the brine and pour it over the top. Then pop the pickles in the fridge.

If you are using unconventional jar sizes you may need to adjust the amount of brine to fill the jars you have.

It is also fun to cut the cucumbers in whatever shape you like.

I made long sandwich slices, spears, and crinkle cut round slices. With a large enough jar and small enough cucumbers, you could leave them whole as well.

Have fun with it!

Pickle Q&A

How long do refrigerator pickles last?

Homemade pickles should last for two months in the refrigerator in their jar. However, the longer they sit, the less crunchy they become.

What are pickles made of?

The pickles themselves are cucumbers soaked in brine (water, vinegar, and salt) mixed with spices. As the cucumbers soak in the mixture, they are transformed into pickles.

What are the best pickles?

This question is easy, these pickles are the best! Obviously! They are homemade and simple to make. Knowing exactly what you are putting into your body is so empowering, especially when it tastes just as good if not better than store-bought.
