Easy Overnight Refrigerator Pickles

Today on the stay at home chef , I'm showing you how to make easy overnight refrigerator , pickles , refrigerator pickles always remind me of my grandpa .

He was an avid gardener and I swear he always had pickles in the refrigerator .

Not only are refrigerator , pickles delicious .

They only require a few simple ingredients and they're super easy to make .

You'll need white vinegar , sugar , salt , whole garlic and whole black peppercorns as well as dill and cucumbers .

You'll also need a container to keep your pickles in .

You can use any food storage container with a lid or you can also use a mason jar .

You'll also need to decide what kind of cucumber you're going to use .

You can use mini or pickling cucumbers .

You could also use a regular cucumber or what I prefer is an English cucumber .

English cucumbers have a thinner skin and are a little bit sweeter , but any kind of cucumber you want to use should work next .

You need to decide what shape to cut them into with mini or pickling cucumbers .

The best thing to do is cut off the end and then slice in half or in quarters depending on their side so that you end up with pickle spears .

Well , they're just cucumber spears for now , but they're about to become pickle spears .

So I'm gonna put these into my container and then I'll show you how to slice a regular cucumber .

Well , not that you need to know how to slice it .

You can slice these thin though , or you can go a little bit thicker .

It really is a matter of personal preference , whether you want thin or thick pickles .

If you're not using an English cucumber , you may want to off some of the peels and of course , you don't have to cut these cucumbers into slices .

You can also cut them into spears as well .

Just get a good three inch chunk of cucumber , slice it in half and then you can go half again depending on the size or you can go thirds or even quarters .

If you have a really fat cucumber , once your cucumbers are all prepped and cut , we're gonna grab a sauce pan and head on over to the stove to make your pickling liquid .

You'll need 1.5 cups of distilled white vinegar and you're gonna pour that into your sauce over medium high heat .

Then we'll add in two tablespoons of sugar , one tablespoon of salt , one teaspoon of whole black peppercorns and three whole cloves of garlic .

And then we're going to bring this to a boil the act of heating the liquid causes the chemical reaction , which will ensure that your sugar and salt do not separate from the vinegar and end up in a pile on the bottom of your container .

Once it comes to a boil , that should be just enough to dissolve the sugar and salt and we'll remove this from the heat .

And then we're gonna put all of this in directly with our cucumbers and make sure all of the peppercorns and garlic end up in the jar as well .

Sometimes I even use like the edge of a spoon or a measuring spoon to stuff the garlic down .

Then you'll want to place the lid on whatever container you're using and let this cool at room temperature for about one hour .

After an hour .

It's time to add in our dill because of course , who doesn't love a good dill pickle ?

You don't want to add in your dill while the liquids are hot .

Otherwise it'll wilt .

So just add it in later and you'll want to add in about three or four sprigs depending on their size .

And then one fun last twist .

If you like spice , you can add in quarter to half a teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes kind of spread that around in there as well .

That will bring the heat .

Once again , we'll place the lid on and place these into the fridge overnight .

Then the next day you'll have delicious refrigerator pickles that are ready to eat .

These should stay good in the fridge for basically as long as it takes you to eat them , they really should last for months .

Refrigerated .
