Yup, you read that right! Fresh, delicious, homemade pickles in just 3 days!!
About 20 small pickling cucumbers (enough to fill 4 quart jars)
1 head garlic
2 T pickling spice mix (like this one: http://amzn.to/1aEQ2qm)
Small bunch of fresh dill
2 quarts water
1/2 cup raw organic apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup sea or kosher salt
Mix brine together until salt is dissolved. Set aside. Wash cucumbers and slice larger ones in half or quarters (I kept the small ones whole). In each quart sized glass canning jar place 2 fresh dill heads, 4 cloves garlic, and 1/2 T pickling spices. Place cucumbers on top. Pour brine over, being sure cucumbers are covered with liquid. Cover lightly with cheesecloth, or lid.
Let them sit in a dark pantry for 2-3 days. Try them out, and when they taste fabulous, transfer to fridge and enjoy for up to 6-12 month (even though we all know they will be gone long before that!).
