Refrigerator dill pickles are crisp and tangy and much easier to make than traditional canning. You can even reuse the brine!

  • 16 ounces pickling cucumbers (sliced ¼" thick)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 sprigs fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon pickling spice


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 pint jars


  • Prepare the brine by simmering water, vinegar, and salt in a medium saucepan until the salt has dissolved. Remove from heat and store in the refrigerator until the brine has cooled.
  • Using two pint jars, add 1 minced clove of garlic, 1 sprig of dill, ½ teaspoon pickling spice, and 8 ounces of sliced cucumbers to each jar. Pour brine into each jar until it reaches ½" below the rim.
  • Seal jars tightly and store in the refrigerator for at least a week prior to enjoying.


Traditional cucumbers can be used if pickling cucumbers cannot be found.
