• Overnight Pickles! Posted on August 13, 2013


    Overnight Pickles! These are wonderful! I’m an aspiring canner but I haven’t got it down yet. In the meantime this is a wonderful way to make pickles. They’ll probably keep for a few weeks in the fridge if you don’t have a crew like mine who eats them all before you have a chance to test how long they’ll last!

    Overnight Pickles

    4 cups of water

    1/2 cup of white vinegar

    3 tablespoons of pickling or kosher salt

    2 tablespoons of sugar

    garlic cloves (3 per quart jar)

    1 teaspoon of mustard seed or 1 tablespoon of pickling spice

    dill seeds or fresh dill

    8-10 pickling cucumbers

    Wash and quarter pickling cucumbers (or slice into rounds if you prefer) and pack into quart or pint jars. As written, this recipe makes 2 quarts and one pint, I double it to make five quarts. Make a brine by bringing the first four ingredients to a boil and then cooling. Once cool, pour into jars over cucumbers and add spices, garlic and dill. Close jars and refrigerate overnight. They’ll be ready the next day!
