These pickles. Oh my.
They might change your life, and they’ll definitely change the life of your sandwiches. Sometimes I make a sandwich just so I can have these pickles on it.
We started making them a couple of years ago after our annual trip to Wisconsin to visit my mom’s side of the family. My Uncle Dave shared this recipe with us, and we cannot beat it! These are the real dill.
The recipe is below, but I’ll just tell you – they’re very easy to make! I can’t even tell you how many people have eaten these pickles at our house and then requested the recipe. We use a variation of this recipe, and then add the jalapenos to give them some zing.
Once you assemble the jars full of the ingredients, be sure to leave the jars in the fridge for at least 4-5 days before eating them to allow the cucumbers to actually pickle and soak up all of the flavor.
And, just FYI, these are not jarred pickles that you can store on pantry shelves. You have to store them in the refrigerator!
I hope you love them as much as we do! We are such pickle snobs now – it is so hard to eat a regular store-bought pickle after having these!
