How to make your own Easy Homemade Pickles

Easy Homemade Pickles

Spring is here, but will it ever stop raining? I mean seriously… we see blue sky and then everything changes again. Good news… the drought is over, right? ūüėÄ

As the days start to get warmer and the sun begins to shine, we are all going to start thinking about tending our gardens. Flower gardens or vegetable gardens, that’s all a part of the summertime. Let’s say you plant vegetables and if you’re like me… you don’t plant just one cucumber plant. Instead you plant a couple. Soon you’ll have more cucumbers than you’ll know what to do with.

Then it’s time to make some pickles!

Come back here and grab this recipe for homemade pickles! They are simple, delicious, sweet and crunchy. Super easy too and they take no time at all.

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles
Slice the pickles thinly and pack them into a small jar.




If you like crunchy pickles slice the cucumbers a little wider say 1/4 inch. ¬†You can keep the peel on or remove it ‚Äď either way will work, it‚Äôs really your preference. ¬†Me, I like the texture of the peel after it‚Äôs pickled. ¬†I leave it on.
