Use up summer cucumbers with this delicious refrigerator dill pickle recipe – no canning needed!
Are you a fan of flavorful crisp dill pickles? Listen up!
Pickles make a great snack food or side and you’ll be surprised at how easy they are to brine at home using fresh cucumbers! These quick garlic and dill refrigerator pickles are so crisp and full of flavor – I promise if you make them, you’ll never want to buy a jar at the store again!
Slice the cucumbers to the size you prefer. For instance, you can cut some in spears and some in slices to have both.
Enjoy refrigerator pickles with a sandwich, in salads, on top of hamburgers, or by themselves as they make a super healthy and easy homemade snack! And for all you gardeners, this is a great way to use up extra summer cucumbers!
Tips for making this easy refrigerator dill pickle recipe:
- Which cucumbers work best for homemade pickles? Try to find Kirby cucumbers in your store or farmer’s market as I noticed most online sources recommended that variety. I, however, was not successful at sourcing them easily near me, and used the common grocery store cucumber. It still worked out fine because I enjoyed them a lot!
- Keep your pickles in glass jars with lids. I used a couple of these Mason clamp jars. Maybe consider reusing store-bought pickle jars for this idea or checking out thrift stores to save!
- It takes a couple of days of soaking for pickles to reach optimum flavor. They get more flavorful over time, and I think they’re best after a few days. YUM!
- This idea can be adapted fully to taste. If you’d like a spicy pickle, consider adding in some crushed red pepper flakes or fresh sliced jalapeños as an idea!
- How long will homemade dill pickles last in the fridge? They should keep around 4-6 weeks when stored in jars with tightly fitting lids in the fridge.
- What if you finish your pickles quickly and want to add more to your brine to reuse it? I have done that before and it’s worked out great. According to FoodHero.com, you can safely reuse pickle brine 2-3 times. Also, consider adding leftover brine to flavor salad dressings or marinades. It could work great in our Keto Dill Pickle Dressing recipe in place of the pickle juice!
- Eating keto or low carb? Swap the sugar for a sugar substitute such as granulated monk fruit!
