Our garden is exploding with tasty treats! Look at that cute ittle-wittle cucumber sprouting…
We used our first cucumber of the season to make some spicy refrigerator pickles. It’s seriously the easiest thing in the world: You just slice your cuke, boil some vinegar and spices, pour on top and refrigerate for a few days. You can use my recipe for curry-spicy pickles or make up your own! Hurry up and get them in the fridge so they’re ready for 4th of July BBQs. Get the Easy Peasy Spicy Pickles Recipe after the jump…
Easy-Peasy Spicy Pickles
Thinly slice a big cucumber up, about 3 cups of sliced cucumber will do.
Very thinly slice up about a cup of onion.
In a glass jar or bowl or whatever, place the cucumbers with the onion on top.
In a pan mix all of these ingredients together, bring to a boil and boil for a minute:
3/4 Cup White Vinegar
1/3 Cup Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Mustard
1/2 Teaspoon Dill Seed
1/2 Teaspoon Curry Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper
1/8 Teaspoon Black Pepper
2 Garlic Cloves sliced
Now pour that over the cucumber & onions. Put a lid on it and stick it in the fridge. Let it sit for 3-4 days.
