Refrigerator Kosher Dill Pickles

I've used this dill pickle recipe as long as I've grown cucumbers. It's easy to make and the pickles taste amazing. I make these in small batches every couple of days as the cucumbers in my garden get big enough to use. They keep for around 6 month in the refrigerator if you don't eat them first.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add salt and spices to each jar. Add cucumbers sliced, whole (ends trimmed) or spears, packing them in tightly. Fill jar to within 1/2 inch of the top. Add pickling liquid to cover the cucumbers. Put a lid and ring on the jar and shake for a few seconds to distribute the salt and spices evenly. Refrigerate for 7 days, shaking the jar for a few seconds every day. These will last approximately 6 months in the refrigerator.

These are really great! They have quite a nice "kick" from the red pepper flakes. I made mine in spears but would like to try as chips next time as I think they'd be great on a burger! Thanks so much for posting!

I've been experimenting with a lot of pickle recipes lately, and this is hands down my favorite. Great dill flavor. I did use a little more garlic than called for (just added smashed cloves) and will also add sliced onions to the sliced cucumbers next time. For us pickle addicts, these are the bomb.

I just tried this. It was so easy, the pickles stay crunchy. Made 8 jars and so made the cucumbers stopped growing. Cant wait for next year to do more. Would like to give out as gifts. Thanks
