When you have a surplus of cucumbers in your garden, what do you do? You make pickles!
This recipe is considered “spicy” because of the garlic and red pepper flakes, however I would not consider it spicy as in hot. The taste is a more tangy than your traditional store bought pickles and has more flavor.
In comparison, this recipe differs from sweet pickles, also known as butter pickles. Butter pickles are traditionally cut into smaller pieces and this recipe can be altered too. I prefer long skinny chunks which are easier for snacking straight from the jar.
This recipe can also be used for green beans, beats, peppers and any other garden veggie that you want to savor later.
Here is my favorite spicy dill pickle recipe that you can customize to your liking and enjoy homemade pickles all winter long!
Ingredients: Cucumbers, Coriander Seeds, Mustard Seeds, Garlic, Red Pepper Flakes, Black Pepper, Tumeric, Dill, & Brine (To make brine, boil equal parts water and white vinegar with kosher salt)
Enjoy your pickling 🥒
