Planting Bush Pickling Cucumbers got me itchy to make some pickles so I tried a Quick Pickle recipe I bookmarked. They are nice and vinegary and dill is always a hit around here!
I increased the vinegar, sugar and salt to cover the cukes.
Quick Refrigerator Pickles-Adapted from Make Mine Lemon
1/2 C white vinegar-I used 1 C
2 tsp sugar-I used 3 tsp
1 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp salt-I used Kosher salt and 1 1/2 tsp
1 clove garlic, cracked-I suggest a smaller one, but you know your crowd...
1 tsp dried dill weed or 2 Tblsp fresh leaves snipped
1 bay leaf
4 Persian cucumbers, sliced-I used kirbys and made them about 1/4" thick
- Add dill and bay leaf to a pint jar then fill with sliced cucumbers. Approximately 4-5.
- Bring vinegar, sugar, mustard seed, salt and garlic to a simmer, dissolve sugar and salt.
- Pour into jar and let cool.
- They're ready to eat once cooled and can be stored in the fridge.
I'd like to sincerely thank you for your visits!
Be sure to play in the dirt and have a happy day:@)
