Homemade pickles!

I looked up how to make pickles and it looked fairly easy so I challenged myself to take on the task. It’s super simple and the results were delicious.

What you need:

  • 1 cucumber
  • A mason jar
  • Vinegar (I used both white vinegar and apple cider vinegar)
  • Water
  • Some salt
  • A little garlic
  • A few red pepper flakes

Now I didn’t put measurements because it all depends on your taste, I love vinegar so I put a lot, if you like garlic put a lot, if you don’t just leave it out. And if you don’t want to you don’t have to use apple cider vinegar, it made the pickles a tiny bit sweeter. It just depends on what you like!

They are so delicious! Usually my final product doesn’t always turn out the way I want them to but my pickles definitely did! I left them in the refrigerator for 48 hours before trying them. And I used store bought pickles but now I’m going to try to grow my own cucumber! Maybe also I can try using different flavors or use different herbs in the jar to see how they turn out.

It amazes me how instead of going to the grocery store and buying these products we can make them in the comfort of our own homes and it’s such a great feeling (at least for me) to eat something I made. Ahhhhh so happy.
