Easy Homemade Pickles

I LOVE pickles. Especially the super salty garlic flavored dills. I can munch my way through a jar of dills in no time flat. I always wanted to try making my own pickles, it just seemed like such a complicated and messy process so I never got around to trying it. Then I  found this recipe from the Hip Girls Guide to Homemaking.  Check out the full post here
The long story short:


Cucumber or other veggies of your choice
1 cup filtered water
1 cup of any kind of vinegar
1 tbsp of non iodized salt
Herbs and spices of your choice (like dill or garlic)

Slice up your veggies and put them in a jar. Add your spices.

Mix the water, vinegar and salt in a pot and bring to a boil.  Pour the brine mixture into the jar, screw on the lid wipe down the glass.  Now let it sit in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks while it ferments.

Easy peasy!

I just made my first batch  with sliced cucumber and tucked it away in the back of the fridge.  I’ll let you know how they taste in a few weeks!
