Pickling 101

 After picking up some homegrown cucumbers from the Farmers Market, I immediately knew I wanted to try out pickling.  My dad and I came up with this really simple, but amazing recipe.

What you’ll need:

  •  2 Sprigs of Fresh Dill
  • 2 Cups of White Wine Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup of Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon of Salt
  • 1/4 Yellow Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 Medium-sized  Onion
  • 1 Large Cucumber

Here is how:

1. Cut your yellow bell pepper and onion into large pieces.  Place yellow bell pepper, onion, and fresh dill into glass jar.  Slice cucumber and place into jar.

2. Boil the white wine vinegar, sugar, and salt for about ten minutes until sugar and salt is completely dissolved.

3.  Pour hot vinegar liquid into jar with ingredients.  Place into fridge overnight.

4. Serve the next day.

***There are no preservatives.  Pickles will stay good for about 7 days.

Like spicy?  Try adding a little bit of cayenne pepper or seafood boil seasonings to add a kick!
