Quick Refrigerator Pickles

Quick Refrigerator Pickles have a beautiful complex taste that I love!. They taste so much better when prepared at home. There is just no competition with store-bought pickles!

  • 32 Oz Mason jar, canister, or similar


  • 2 Large Cucumbers Regular or garden cucumbers
  • ½ Medium  Onion red or yellow
  • 2 Cloves Garlic freshly sliced thinly
  • 4-5 Sprigs Fresh Dill not dryed

The Brine

  • Cups Vinegar white
  • Cup Sugar or more for a sweeter pickle
  • 1 teaspoon Salt coarse, kosher or Himalayan sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon Mustard Seed whole
  • ½ teaspoon Celery Seed whole
  • ½ teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes  or crushed red pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper ground


  • Cut the cucumbers! The cucumbers can be cut any way that you like. We prefer the spears and pickle chip rounds, but sandwich slices or any style that you like is absolutely fine!
  • Pickling the onion removes all of its pungency while adding flavor to the brine. Place the sliced cucumbers, onions, and garlic into a jar along with a handful of fresh dill springs.
  • Prepare the brine on your stovetop using a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat. Heat the vinegar, and remaining ingredients and bring to a low rapid boil, stirring regularly, until the salt and sugar have dissolved completely. About 4 minutes. Allow the brine to cool for a few minutes before pouring it into the jar of cucumbers and onions.
  • Once the brine has completely cooled down to room temperature, seal the container and place in the refrigerator. They are ready to eat in about 2 hours or more!


These beauties are made quickly in less than 20 minutes! Also, they marinate super quickly and can be enjoyed within a few hours of refrigeration.
