Garlic Dill Refrigerator Pickles.



Fresh Garlic Dill Pickles remind me of growing up in south Florida.  I was raised in the land of the Jewish deli (oh, how I love a good Jewish deli) where they would always put a dish of of crunchy pickles on the table for munching before your entree arrived.  Oh, I love those pickles.  So today I decided to make some.  I have no idea if the authentic deli pickles are made this way, I just made a quick batch of refrigerator pickles the easiest way I know how.  Also the most delicious. Most. Deeeelicious.

Garlic Dill Refrigerator Pickles, Ingredients:

  • Cucumbers, sliced (Use whatever kind you prefer, I like to do a variety but if you get the kind with a coat of wax, be sure to peel it!) - I use enough to nearly fill a quart jar
  • Fresh garlic, thinly sliced - I use 2-3 large cloves per quart jar
  • Sweet yellow onion, thinly sliced - I use 1 small onion per quart jar
  • Dill seed (yes, seed NOT weed) - I use about a tablespoon per quart jar
  • Salt - I use 1 -2 tablespoon per quart jar
  • White vinegar
  • Filtered water

Garlic dill refrigerator Pickles, Directions:

  1. Add cucumber, onion, and garlic to a large bowl.  Sprinkle with dill seed and salt, then mix well (alternately you could layer directly into your mason jar).
  2. Pack mixture into mason jars.  Pour vinegar into jar until it is about 1/4 - 1/3rd full.  Fill remainder of the jar with water, screw on cap (tightly!) and give it a good shake. Taste your brine (no, SERIOUSLY) - this is your opportunity to make adjustments!
  3. Refrigerate overnight, then enjoy! (These will keep for about 10 or so days in the refrigerator, but I seriously doubt they will last that long.)

  1. I've tried making refrigerator pickles a few times now and each time I've failed miserably... never used dill seed... maybe that is the key!

  2. Oh, I love refrigerator pickles! If you love dill and garlic, you may want to give these a try, too. They use sugar and Tabasco:
