How to Make Homemade Pickles!

This recipe for homemade pickles was inspired and adapted by our good friend Susan from Savoring Time in the Kitchen.  She has delicious recipes and we have been friends for years.  This happens to be her mother’s recipe and it’s an easy one too. 

Best part? 

No cooking and no baking involved when making homemade pickles …  only slicing is required. 😉

Besides their delicious flavor, these pickles are sweet-tangy-crispy and refreshing!  So simple and practically effortless to make, why bother buying the jar?

Tips and Notes for these pickles…

  • If you have any leftover sliced cucumbers, just reserve them to toss into a salad for dinner or lunch.

    I’m so happy you like them! My cucumbers are just about ready to start picking and I’m excited to make a batch with them just like my mother used to do with her garden cucumbers. Takes me back quite a few years 😉 Thanks so much for the mention, Anna!
