Have you ever thought about being fancy and handy and making your own pickles? What with all the cucumbers coming off the vine recently we thought we'd share an easy pickle recipe - but you don't have to share the simple factor with your friends...let them be duly impressed!
- about 4 cups of cucumbers, washed well and cut into spears or slices (your preference!)
- 3.5 cups water
- 1.25 cups white vinegar
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp sea salt
- 2 cloves whole garlic, peeled
- 2 heads of fresh dill
Combine the water, vinegar, sugar, and sea salt in a medium saucepan and bring it to a boil. Remove it from the heat and let it cool completely - pour it into another container and stick it in the fridge to speed the process up.
Put the cucumbers, garlic, and dill in a large glass container (or several if they don't fit into one) and pour the vinegar mixture over them until they're immersed. Seal the containers with a lid and refrigerate for at least 3 days.
Enjoy with whatever you like to eat pickles with!
In other news, we'll be at the market this week with green beans, Lebanese summer squash, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, cucumbers, and peppers. Plus...fresh bread of course! We hope to see you there.
