Pickles on the cheap

Why settle for soggy, oversugared, unflavorful store-bought pickles, when you can easily and more cheaply make your own?

If it’s quick refrigerator pickles you want, then it’s quick refrigerator pickles you shall make. Cukes are cheap (I got mine for a quarter) and the pickling ingredients are nominal as well. I packed my jar with dill, turmeric, 2 cloves of garlic, a pinch of sea salt, black pepper, mustard seeds. Plain white vinegar and a dash of water took care of the rest. I usually wait about 4 days until digging in – and boy, they are good! Try to use them within the week. Discard the old solution, clean your jar in the dishwasher, and try pickling other things, too!
