Spicy Refrigerator Pickles are easy and only take about 10 min. to make. The result is deliciously crunchy, briny, garlicky pickles in no time!
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar (you can use white vinegar too)
  • 1½ Tbsp. Kosher or pickling salt
  • 2 tsp. black peppercorns
  • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 6 large cloves garlic, peeled and sliced in half
  • 6 fresh dill heads
  • 2 lbs. cucumbers, sliced
  1. Add the water, vinegar, salt, peppercorns, garlic, and red pepper flakes to a small pot, heat on low until salt is dissolved. Let cool while you prep the cucumbers.
  2. In a large jar or container, layer in the cucumbers, garlic and dill. Pour the cooled brine on top.
  3. Top with lid and rotate around and up and down to disperse the ingredients.
  4. Refrigerate for 2 days (but who can wait that long) and up to 2 weeks.
