Easy Homemade Pickles

MG 0042

Dill pickles are one of my favorite snacks, so when I spotted pickling cucumbers at the farmers’ market last weekend, I decided to try out this homemade version. There are lots of pickling techniques, but I like this recipe because it’s fast and the pickles are tangy and crunchy.
