Super Easy Dill Refrigerator Pickles
-Makes 1 quart jar-
5 (3-4") pickling cucumbers
2 c. water
1 c. white vinegar
1 T. kosher salt
1/2 t. sugar
1 t. pickling spice
big bunch of fresh dill
3 large cloves garlic, peeled
10-20 peppercorn kernels
1 small onion, coarsely sliced
1/2 of a small green bell pepper, coarsely sliced
- Slice cucumbers into spears, OR cut them into bite-size circles. (I used a crinkle-cutter to give mine a wavy edge, which is kind of fun!) Set aside.
- In a heavy, stainless steel saucepan, combine: water, vinegar, salt, sugar, and pickling spice. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve salt and sugar. Remove and cool to room temperature.
- Layer cucumbers, sprigs of dill, garlic, peppercorns, onions slices, and bell pepper slices into a clean quart canning jar. Pour cooled liquid over all. Seal with a canning jar lid and place in refrigerator; allow to sit for 48 hours before tasting.
- Will last for at least a month!
