Super Easy Dill Refrigerator Pickles

Although I've made many jars of pickles in the past, I've never tried my hand at refrigerator pickles. SO easy! And SO delicious! I should've been making them for years. Gather the ingredients from your local farmers' market, and spend just a few minutes to make a jar for your family!

Super Easy Dill Refrigerator Pickles

-Makes 1 quart jar-

5 (3-4") pickling cucumbers
2 c. water
1 c. white vinegar
1 T. kosher salt
1/2 t. sugar
1 t. pickling spice
big bunch of fresh dill
3 large cloves garlic, peeled
10-20 peppercorn kernels
1 small onion, coarsely sliced
1/2 of a small green bell pepper, coarsely sliced

- Slice cucumbers into spears, OR cut them into bite-size circles. (I used a crinkle-cutter to give mine a wavy edge, which is kind of fun!) Set aside.

- In a heavy, stainless steel saucepan, combine: water, vinegar, salt, sugar, and pickling spice. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve salt and sugar. Remove and cool to room temperature.

- Layer cucumbers, sprigs of dill, garlic, peppercorns, onions slices, and bell pepper slices into a clean quart canning jar. Pour cooled liquid over all. Seal with a canning jar lid and place in refrigerator; allow to sit for 48 hours before tasting.

- Will last for at least a month!
