DIY- Dill Pickles



Another simple recipe that I want to share. I love the feeling of knowing exactly what's in the foods that I eat/cook with. This was super easy to make. The sourness with a little kick of spiciness was PERFECT!

INGREDIENTS:
-Cucumbers
-1 Glass Jar
-Dill
-Garlic
-Red Pepper Flakes
-4 Tbsp White Vinegar
-Black Peppers
-Salt
-1 Cup Water

Wash the cucumber, cut the ends off, and cut into spears; add the spices and vinegar to the jar; pack the cucumbers into the jar; add water and seal tightly storing at room temperature for 24 hours before storing in the refrigerator. *For best results make sure the cucumbers are ripe and not limp.


I said I was going to save and not touch it for a recipe, Ha!…. one bite next thing you know there's no more. I was snacking like it was nobody's business. So back to making this again. It was so good.

FUN FACTS:
-Did you know that cucumbers are scientifically known as fruits (I know, I know it's not sweet)

-Don't limit yourself to just cucumbers there are others out there waiting to be pickled like green beans, bell peppers, and more.

-Check out my Haitian Pikliz recipe, it's a Haitian pickled version of the American coleslaw.

Oh and another thing your pickles shouldn't look like this…

Stay away from certain brands of store bought pickles that is loaded with crappy ingredients with artificial coloring. I used to buy them and could tell the difference and it's why I prefer to make my own.
