Home made fridge pickles!!

Something about pickling or fermenting just gets me so darn excited!

My recipe:

(freestyle it as you will)

  • 1 cup of diced onion
  • 1 bulb of diced garlic
  • 1 big cup of fresh dill
  • 2lbs of pickles (always local and organic of course)
  • 2 cups of vinegar
  • 2 1/4 ish cup of hot water
  • 2 tsp’s of pickling spice from Earths General Store…ideally left in a cupboard and forgotten for a year
  • 1 tsp of caclium chloride to get them pickles to *SNAP!

Cut the pickles into thirds, mix all the liquids together and then submerge everything in the fridge for 4 days. After 4 days take them out and toss them into some jars. Give it another week and then BAM done! tasty!

I have canned them in the past but I think that’s mostly a big scam so these one’s are going fridge style.

(Note: i still got to figure out a good resizer in chrome…this is kinda ridiculous…
