Easy Dill Pickles is my recipe of the day with Farmer’s Market Week. This wraps up the week for me and I wanted to end it with an easy pickle recipe.

The brine has a good garlic flavor and has just a hint  of spiciness.

I love that I can buy a bag of cukes or just have six off the vines (I did grow them last year but not this year) and put together a small batch.

It’s just the  two of us here so it’s perfect.

Ready to Eat in One Week

The  easy dill pickles  are ready in just a week and come out nice and crisp like a claussen pickle. I really don’t like mushy pickles (and many canning recipes do turn out that way,  even  with pickle crisp). I like them to go *crunch*!

The recipe is for two  quarts approximate, because cukes vary in size. But the idea is to slice the cukes and fill  the jars  and top up with boiling brine, let cool down on the countertop, then refrigerate. You can always make more brine.

If you have extra brine you can use them for something else, like  pickling onions or blanched cauliflower.

  1. This recipe looks fantastic! I’ve been looking for new ways to make pickles. Would this recipe work for other vegetables as well? Thank you for sharing!

    • The brine will work on all things giving them that dill flavor. So as long as you want dill flavor, this works.

    • No. Some dill recipes have a small amount added for smooth flavor, but not enough to make them like sweet pickles.
