How to Make Dill Pickles
Learn the simple secret to making easy dill pickles at home.
Typically, pickles can offer more vitamins and fiber than cucumbers — especially when they’re naturally fermented, but be mindful of the sodium and sugar content in some brands you find at the store.
Traditionally, you use fermentation over a long period of time to achieve the perfect dill pickle. Fortunately, if you don’t have time to wait — or you just want your pickles STAT — you can use an overnight method like I share here today.
This faster method means that your cucumbers soak in the brine of vinegar, salt, and spices for only a few days while in the refrigerator. The result? Crunchy, crisp and satisfying.
These easy dill pickles are perfect to add to the list on batch cooking day! I enjoy making them on Saturdays so I can enjoy them the following week. Be sure to use airtight, clean jars — like mason jars —when making these at home.
