Homemade Pickles

I LOVE pickles.

Kind of random, but it’s true. Pickles have always been basically my favorite food in existence.

So, when we got these guys in our CSA box last week, I knew what I had to do.

That’s right, we made our own pickles!

We’ve actually had a pickle-making-kit from Crate & Barrel for several months now and have never gotten around to trying it out. So last weekend, I decided there was no reason to wait any longer.

It was surprisingly simple to make ‘em – I just cut the pickles into little slices, tossed them into the jars, mixed up the flavoring and poured it in. 24 hours later, they were ready for snacking!

Um, they’re GOOD! It made four jars, so they’re going to last a while – but considering how often I’ve been snacking on them, I could be wrong about that!

Have you ever made homemade pickles? I’m obsessed now!

    I’m also a pickle fan, though I prefer them as a sandwich side rather than straight snack, even when pregnant. One of my favorites is a recipe for bread and butter pickles you can make in the microwave. I tried growing cucumbers this year so I could get the full “home grown” pickle experience, but sadly the sun murdered them last week. Maybe next year??

    You KNOW I love making pickles. So easy and they taste so much better than store bought. Great right now with all the produce you can get at the farmers market. Try slipping in a whole little clove of garlic in each jar for a different flavor, or some thin slices of red onion for something a little different.
