Are you spicy or sweet? Check out the spicy refrigerator pickles and bread & butter pickles recipes below! Pickles are like people — some are fast, some are slow, some are sweet and some are spicy. And some can be downright sour. In our house, there are fans of each variety — pickles, that is.
My husband’s into fast and fiery refrigerator pickles, while I’m all about some slow and sweet, old-fashioned bread and butter pickles. So there’s always something in our fridge or pantry to satisfy any craving.
Classic pickle ingredients include seeds like coriander, mustard, celery or cloves, and herbs like dill or tarragon. Most people add spices like allspice or ground ginger. You can experiment with your pickle flavor by adding extra ingredients like garlic, sweet or spicy peppers and other herbs and spices. It won't take long to find the perfect pickle for your palate.
At our house, we each make our own pickles in our own ways, usually on weekend afternoons after we’ve gotten some fresh pickling cucumbers and peppers from the farmers market. (We have to take turns in our tiny kitchen or things turn sour.) My husband likes to make a quick batch of pickles then go take a nap. I, on the other hand, tend to work at the process and turn it into an afternoon production.
