Recipes | Homemade Pickles

One thing I love about summer time is my grandpa's garden and making the home made pickles from the cucumbers. He would make some the traditional way in the mason jars but a couple he'd just cut up in vinegar with onions. It's really quick and simple snack that goes great with sandwiches.

What You'll Need:
  • Cucumbers
  • Distilled White Vinegar
  • Yellow Onion
  • Container or bowl
  • Plastic Wrap (if container doesn't have lid)

  1. Rinse off cucumbers; peel and cut into either slices or spears which ever you prefer.
  2. You'll only need about half of that onion; peel and chop.
  3. Put cucumbers and onions in container/bowl and pour vinegar till everything is covered.
  4. Wrap and put in refrigerator for a few hours then they're ready to eat. 


  1. I never would have thought to make those myself! what a great idea!

    1. We always had some in the fridge and even though they don't last as long compared to if you did the proper canning steps they never seems to last long enough before everyone ate them to even go bad.

  2. I might have to try this out just for *myself*. No one in this house likes pickles. Pffft!

    1. And you can determine how much you want than wasting money on a full jar of pickles. Though they do still have a vinegar twang to them they still taste so good.
