No joke, I used to get pickles in my stocking at Christmas time. I’ve always been obsessed.
I also used to drink Italian dressing out of the bottle, but that’s a story for another time.
Back to pickles…
Why are they so expensive? I have no idea. They’re just cucumbers and vinegar!
Off I went on my journey to discover the best homemade pickle. It can’t be that hard right?
Requirements: 1. easy (and no canning process necessary), 2. edible in one day, 3: super vinegar-y and flavorful (none of those sweet butter pickles thank you).
I prefer whole crunchy pickles as opposed to slices, so I went with the cocktail sized cucumber. I also prefer a zingy, not-too-sweet pickle hence I added a few garlic cloves, whole peppercorns, and some red pepper flakes. I love that these pickles are done basically in a day, and they’re even cold, ready in the fridge waiting for you!
If you’re using Ball canning jars I find that these plastic lids are super useful. They don’t rust like the other ones can and they’re just one piece instead of two. I probably have about 40 of them and I use them every day for refrigerator and pantry storage.
