A Fun and Delicious Summer Recipe
As summer comes to an end, I wanted to share this recipe to use fresh cucumbers, whether they're from your garden or from the store! A good family friend shared the recipe with me...it's a fun and fairly simple little project. My mom and I had fun making them one day this summer and the pickles ended up having a great flavor! Plus, pickles are my favorite food so I really enjoyed this! The original recipe calls to make one gallon jar of pickles, but we split up the ingredients between 4 quart-size mason jars.
2 small onions, sliced thin
1/2 head of dill
2-3 cloves garlic
2 jalapeno peppers, sliced thin
2 cups white vinegar
6 cups water
1/2 cup pickling salt (we couldn't find pickling salt but Diamond Crystal brand Kosher salt works well too)
Cut cucumbers 1/4" thick and put in the mason jars (fill 3/4 full).
Place dill in the mason jars.
Cut garlic cloves into pieces. Place the pieces in the mason jars.
Place thinly sliced onions in the mason jars.
Place thinly sliced jalapeños in the mason jars.
Mix the white vinegar, water, and salt together. Pour the mixture over top of the other ingredients in the jars.
Cover loosely with the lids. Set the jars out in the sun for 2 days.
Then, store them in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
