Pickle Tasting Was A Fun Activity For The Aging Gracefully TV Team This Week!
Why not serve up some pickles with smiles?
Cucumbers of all varieties are abundant at this time of the year in Ohio. Maybe you have some in your own home garden?
The Aging Gracefully TV Team found out that Refrigerator Dills are surprisingly easy to make! (Find the recipe listed below.)
If you remember an old Andy Griffith episode where Aunt Bee entered a pickle contest, you’ll understand our fun with pickle tasting even more!
Enjoy Our Pickle Tasting Video!
The recipe below is not a canned pickle recipe so it’s truly EASY. It’s fun to do with kids, too. It takes less than an hour to make these crunchy pickles and then three days of patience while awaiting results! SO worth it!
Refrigerator Dills Recipe
Thank you to our friend Laura who shared this dill pickle recipe with me! She said these pickles remind her of her Hungarian grandma!
(Amounts below can be halved) One big pot or two wide-mouth jars make the process easier!
- 3-1/2 c water
- 1-1/4 c white vinegar
- 1 T sugar
- 1 T sea salt
- 4 c cucumber spears
- 2 cloves garlic – whole
- 2 heads fresh dill (I used entire flower head with fronds and stem)
- Stir water, vinegar, sugar, and salt in saucepan. Bring to boil. Cool completely.
- Pack spears, a garlic clove, and a dill head per jar.
- Pour cooled vinegar solution over to cover. Seal with lid.
- Refrigerate at least 3 days before enjoying and sharing.
