If you love pickles you can make your own without having to buy canning equipment by combining the ingredients into jars and leaving in the refrigerator for 24 hours. After that you’ll have fresh crunchy pickles that will keep in your fridge for two weeks.
Culinary blog Never Trust a Skinny Baker provides a simplified recipe for refrigerator pickles that is an ideal introduction to home food preservation. Combine vinegar, sugar, salt and spices in a large bowl then pour hot water into the bowl to dilute the brine; mix until the sugar is dissolved and allow to cool to room temperature. Chop cucumbers into ¼ inch slices and divide them into jars. Chop dill and garlic together and add to the jars then pour the cooled brine in the jars until it just covers the cucumber slices. Seal the jars and place in your fridge and they’re ready in 24 hours.
Since the pickles never leave your refrigerator you don’t need airtight mason jars. Previously used pickle or spaghetti sauce jars work fine for this. For more information on the exact ingredients see the source link below.
