Homemade Pickles


Homemade Pickles

I love anything sour or pickled!  I have tried a lot of pickling reciped and have never found one I absolutely loved, until now.  I am so happy with this recipe and the great thing about it is they taste great just a few hours after making them and last up to 3 months (although they would never last that long at my home).  They have a little heat but if you don’t like heat just leave the jalapeno’s out. I used cucumbers, geen beans, pearl onions and carrots in mine, but throw in anything you have.  I will add cauliflower next time.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!!

Ingredient List:

4 C water
2 C white vinegar
8 garlic cloves peeled
3 tbsp pickling or kosher salt 1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp peppercorns

1 tsp crushed bay leaves
(alternatively you could use 4 tsp of pre made pickling spice)

1/4 C fresh dill

2 large cucumbers halved and then quartered2 carrots sliced
2 C green beans trimmed 5 pearl onions peeled
2 jalapeños sliced


Bring 4 C water to a boil

Add 2 C vinegar and reduce heat to simmer

Add garlic cloves and salt and simmer for 5-10 minutes

In a large air tight container place all of your spices and dill

Add all cut up veggies

Pour the hot liquid over the veggies until jar is full

Let cool

Refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours and enjoy up to 3 months!
