    During my college days, I always had bread and butter pickled cucumbers at home. Nothing beats a turkey sandwich with a little bit of mayonnaise and pickles! I love the mix of sweet and sour.

    Cucumbers are the most obvious choice for pickling but I recommend testing this with other veggies. Red onions have now taken the number one spot, I am obsessed!



    Wash Your Pickling Jars

    First, thoroughly wash and dry your jars. I recommend washing with warm/hot water to kill any bacteria.


    Prep You Vegetables

    I love pickling red onions, cucumber, and carrots. I wash them then thinly slice the cucumber, thinly slice the red onion into half moon slices and wash and peel the carrots.


    Make The Pickling Brine

    Add all of the pickling brine ingredients to a pot an heat up on medium-high heat until it slightly starts to boil. Allow it to simmer for 5 minutes or until the sugar and salt are completed dissolved.


    Fill The Jars

    Start by adding your flavorings to the bottom of the jars. About 1 tablespoon per jar. You can add peppercorns, mustard seeds, caraway seeds, or coriander seeds. I also love adding dried or fresh dill. The peppercorns and dill is what compliments the cucumber the most, in my opinion.

    Next, add your vegetables. Pack them tightly all the way to the rim of the jars.

    Lastly, fill the jars with the hot pickling brine and seal tightly.

    Allow the jars to cool on your counter before moving them to the refrigerator. Wait at least 48 hours before cracking the jars open.

    Add these pickled vegetables to your salads, meats, sandwiches, the possibilities are endless!

    I have not pickled red onions but it’s been on my list for months now. I know – we will most definitely love it!!

    This is so pretty! I love homemade pickled vegetables, especially this time of the year when the weather heats up.
