This recipe is kind of like going thru one of those unincorporated villages - short & simple, so don't miss it.

A great start to having great pickles. I do a couple things different. I add a few cloves of garlic (sliced or minced) and one to two tsp of mustard seeds. I make two jars at a time because I eat the darned things so fast. You can also add other flavorings, e.g., chiles, cloves, pickling spice, etc.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain all existing juice from pickles, cut pickles in chunks & return to jar after washing jar in hot water. Boil the sugar & vinegar until sugar dissolves & liquid is clear.
  2. Pour juice over pickles, put lid on & let the pickles set for a while, the lid should "pop" (the lid should seal just like regular canning). Jar should be hot when you refill with the hot liquid.
  3. After the jar cools store in refrigerator - give it a few days and then enjoy @ your leisure.
