Hey guys , it's Danny .
Now , summertime has officially begun , which means barbecues , picnics and potlucks are in full swing .
So I wanted to come up with a fun idea that would capture the essence of all of that .
Still be very practical for this quick bite .
I'm showing you how to make 10 minute refrigerator pickles .
Now , just to clarify , they do take three days to pickle , but they only take you 10 minutes to make .
So with just a little bit of forethought , you could be headed to your next summer time bash with a jar full of homemade pickles .
Now , here's all you need to do .
You're gonna grab a small sauce pan and into that .
We're adding one and one quarter cup of white wine vinegar .
Three quarter cup water , turn your heat up to high .
Let it come to a boil .
Once you've got the boil , you're gonna shut off the heat and add one tablespoon plus one teaspoon of kosher salt .
Give it a quick stir and then we're gonna let this cool for 5 to 10 minutes .
Now , in the meantime , you're gonna need to grab a nice big jar .
My jar is 24 ounces , which seems to be the perfect size for one large cucumber .
Now , I did buy my jar , but you don't have to buy them .
If you just think ahead , you can use an old pickle jar or even an old peanut butter jar into the jar .
4 to 5 sprigs of fresh dill , two cloves of chopped garlic and then one large sliced cucumber .
Now , you could also cut this into spears if you prefer .
Just depends how you like your pickles and you wanna get in as many as you can .
There's really no rhyme or reason here .
You just want to fit them in .
Once you've got everything in the jar , we're just gonna pour that cooled pickling liquid that we made right over the top .
And if you find you have a little extra room at the top of the jar , you could always add just a little bit more water if that would make the difference top on the lid and we're gonna pop this into the fridge for three short days .
Now , while my pickles are pickling , I have some dew props here .
I need to give .
This recipe was actually sent to me from my friend Jamie who now lives in Portland and she got it from a blog called Little Mac Shack .
Now , it doesn't look like they do a lot of updating on that blog anymore , but they do have some yummy recipes in the archives .
So definitely worth checking out then after three days and they can certainly sit in there longer .
This is what you're gonna get fresh , homemade pickles .
They're crisp .
They're bright .
They're briny .
You guys have to try these and if you're looking for other dishes to pair them with , make sure you check them out right over here .
Thanks so much for watching guys .
