Refrigerator Pickles

I’ve had a love affair with pickles this summer. It all started when someone brought a big jar of sour pickles to the beach. They were the perfect snack for a hot Texas day. After eating countless jars of store bought pickles I decided that it was time to make my own.

What you need:
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon pickling salt
  • 2 cups ice
  • 3-4 cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion (red, white, yellow, whatever), thinly sliced
What to do:
Bring vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper flakes to a boil.

Boil until the sugar dissolves, then remove from heat. Toss 2 cups of ice in the pot and let the ice melt.

Pack the cucumbers and onion tightly in a jar. They are just regular, not special at all, cucumbers.

I used my mandolin to slice the cucumbers and onion super thin. (I love my mandolin slicer!)

Pour the vinegar liquid over the cucumber mixture and store in the fridge. They will be ready to eat tomorrow!

These sweet and spicy addictive little babies should keep for a couple months as long as they are kept in the refrigerator.

PS- These guys are quite spicy... and I love 'em! If you are not a fan of spice, use less red pepper flakes.

Here's a link to my mandolin.

  1. Yay! I love doing this! I no longer by pickles anymore :) If you like them really hot (a short lived heat) use chili piquins. If you want some I have some dried out from the garden!
