Super Simple Refrigerator Pickles Recipe

pickled to death 😉

Remember those cukes from the #notmygarden ? Turns out the “best pickles I’ve ever had in my whole life” (direct quote from boyfriend #notbragging) are *ridiculously* easy to make!

Purdy too! (No filter. They be vibrant green, bay-bee!)

Being that I’ve never in my life made pickles before, plus the fact that googling “make your own pickles” brings up a handful of totally contradictory info, this one felt like a total shot in the dark.

Plus I didn’t wanna ruin the jar by takin’ one out to try. So I gave ’em to my boyfriend totally un-taste-tested. (Yikes!)

But I’m here to say …

It worked! It worked! We got pickles! And it was easy!

My boyfriend officially named them “Pickled to Death 😉.” (And he told me to put a winky face in the name.)

Who am I to argue? When a man gets all excited and calls your very first pickles the BEST EVER, he can name ’em whatever he wants!

Pickled to Death 😉 Recipe

  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp kosher salt

Warm up glass mason jar by immersing in hot water. Arrange cucumbers upright in jar. Pour liquid in to cover cucumbers, add fennel seeds and peppercorns and screw on cap.
