Who doesn't love dill pickles? Claussen pickles are my favorite. I love salty, garlicky pickles. You haven't had a good pickle until you've had a homemade one though!
I learned to can a few years ago and it's a skill I love having. But before I learned to can I was desperate to make my own pickles. Enter Refrigerator pickles.
This basic recipe can be used for either Refrigerator (no canning) pickles, or traditional water bath canning.
If you don't have homegrown cukes I recommend getting some from a farmer's market. Grocery store cucumbers have a waxy coating on them :/
1 quart spear fridge pickles
1 quart sliced canned pickles
2 quarts spear canned pickles
*Fridge pickles can last up to 6 months in the refrigerator
Pasteurized AC vinegar was used for the canned pickles.
