QUICK Summer Pickles
Love, love love this recipe for quick pickles! They are not kidding about the quick. When I remember my mom's generation doing pickles, it always involved sweating over huge pots and/or bathtubs full of ice. As much as I adore pickles, I've never had the guts for all that. This recipe could not be further from the hassle. You take all the ingredients (cukes, spices, salt, vinegar, garlic, water) and plop them into a mason jar. Shake well, and then you put them in the fridge. Then, three days later, you begin to have some really fantastic pickles. Super crispy (still like a cuke!) but with lovely briny flavors. The big girl keeps requesting pickles for her afternoon snack.
