Ok, so — making dill pickles in your fridge is a super-easy way to get tangy, crunchy pickles made fresh right at home. You can literally eat them within hours and they are AWESOME. Even better, fresh dill is crazy cheap at the farmer’s market during the summer.
Hope you enjoy!
8-10 small cucumbers
3 teaspoons salt (or more if you like em’ salty!)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill (or if you’re like me and can’t get enough dill, add more)
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon minced garlic (optional / highly recommended)
Slice cucumbers super thin (maybe 1/8 of an inch?). If you have a food processor w a slicing blade, that makes your life really easy here. Toss cukes, salt, vinegar, and dill into a large, super clean jar and shake to coat. Allow the pickles to sit in the fridge for a few hours, shaking the jar periodically. You can start munching on them as soon as 1-2 hours in. They are super good about 6 hours in and can be stored for weeks, if they last that long. Enjoy!
