Refrigerator Dill Pickles

Getting reviews...
Using only a handful of pantry ingredients, a Mason jar, and a few hours in the refrigerator, you can make classic dill pickles that are just as tangy and flavorful as those prepared according to more traditional (and labor-intensive) canning techniques. Plus this recipe can be scaled with ease, meaning you can make just one jar or ten in a matter of minutes. So if you're a pickle lover but short on time, this method is for you.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Bring the vinegar, 1 1/2 cups water and 1 tablespoon salt to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the salt is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  2. Meanwhile, place the peppercorns, red pepper flakes, dill and garlic in a 1-quart Mason (or other glass) jar. Pack the cucumbers in the jar as tightly as possible. 
  3. Pour the vinegar mixture over the cucumbers so the cucumbers are completely submerged. Leave uncovered and allow to cool to room temperature, about 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 day before using. The pickles will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Cook’s Note

Cucumbers can be left whole, cut lengthwise into spears or sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds
