These quick pickles are made with fresh sliced cucumbers, vinegar, and pickling spices. If you like a sweeter bread and butter type of pickle, add a tablespoon of sugar.

Prep Time: 8 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 13 minutes



  1. Rinse the cucumber leave it unpeeled unless the peel is tough or waxy. Cut it into 1/4-inch thick rounds.
  2. Pack the slices into a clean 1-pint canning jar or a similar heatproof container (you will be adding boiling water to the cukes).
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan and place the pan over high heat. Bring to a boil; continue boiling for about 30 seconds, stirring frequently, until the sugar is dissolved.
  4. Pour the vinegar mixture over the pickles until the jar is full. If the slices are not completely covered with the hot brine, add a little more water.
  5. Cool, cover, and chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
  6. Refrigerate for up to 10 days.

Makes 8 servings.
