How to Easily Make Delicious Pickles at Home


As pickleball enthusiasts, we may spend most of our time thinking about the game, but every now and then, we find ourselves exploring other areas of interest. One such area is the world of homemade pickles. After trying out various recipes, we’ve discovered a favorite that we can’t wait to share with you. Get ready to make some easy and delicious pickles right in the comfort of your own home!

What You’ll Need

  • Fresh cucumbers
  • Water
  • Vinegar (preferably rice vinegar)
  • Maple syrup (or sugar)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Red pepper flakes (if you like a little heat!)
  • Fresh dill
  • Garlic
  • Bay leaf (optional)

How to Prepare

  1. Start by chopping your cucumbers into your desired shape. You can go for classic spears or opt for rounds or chips. Place the cucumbers in a sealable jar, making sure to leave at least an inch of space from the top.
  2. In a separate container, combine 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1.5 tablespoons of maple syrup (or sugar), a pinch of salt and pepper, and red pepper flakes if you want to add some heat. Stir the mixture well to ensure everything is thoroughly combined.
  3. Pour the liquid mixture into the jar with the cucumbers, ensuring that they are fully submerged. To enhance the flavor, add some fresh dill, garlic cloves, and a bay leaf into the jar before sealing it shut.
  4. Allow the pickles to sit and develop their flavor for a few days. You’ll notice that the longer they sit, the more flavorful they become. Once ready, store the pickles in your refrigerator, where they will stay good for about 3 weeks.

Now, it’s time to enjoy your homemade pickles! These easy and delicious treats are perfect for snacking, adding to sandwiches, or even serving alongside your favorite pickleball snacks. Get creative and savor the tangy, crunchy goodness of your very own homemade pickles.

Happy pickling, Picklers!
