Simple Dill Pickle

Loving this time of year where there are so many fresh fruits and veggies at the farmers market, but sometimes I get overambitious and buy more than I can eat.  Cucumbers are so tasty when in season, but they are not a vegetable that sautés or freezes well at all.  That left me with another option… PICKLING.  I was inspired after refusing to buy an artisanal jar of pickles for $7 and knew I could cut a few cuke’s and mix with a few ingredients for a lot less.  I had success after reading up on refrigerator dill pickles on all  Note these are not shelf stable as I do not have the proper canning jars, but they last several days in the refrigerator.


  • 1.5C Water
  • 1/2c white vinegar
  • 1t sugar
  • 1t sea salt
  • 2 small slicer cuke’s or one large
  • fresh dill
  • peppercorns


  1. Stir water, vinegar, sugar, and sea salt together in a saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil; remove from heat and cool completely.
  2. Combine cucumber spears, garlic cloves, and fresh dill in a large glass or plastic container. Pour cooled vinegar mixture over cucumber mixture.
