Quick pickles

These are as quick to make as they sound. They're easy peasy. But take note: they do not last as long as processed, regular pickles. So, eat up!


On the left: vinegar pickles
On the right: sweet pickles


For sweet pickles:
1 c raw sugar
1 c white vinegar
1 c water
dash salt
onions (optional)

For savory pickles:
1 1/2 c white vinegar
1/2 c water
1 T sugar
1 t salt
1 T pickle spice


Step 1: fill your jar with sliced cucumbers.


Step 2: boil your ingredients.

Step 3: Once your liquid has boiled for a few minutes, simply pour directly over your cucumbers. Close your jars and refrigerate.

They'll be ready in 24 hours. See? Easy!

*Using smaller jars? Half the recipe.

  1. Hi - you can do the same quick recipe for broccoli stems and they're fantastic. I add a few flakes of dried chili pepper.
