I Am Not Lazy…
This is my much requested, modified version of what is commonly known around here as “Lazy Woman’s Pickles”. (hah, hah)
I have spent hours in the hot summer kitchen canning a regular version of pickles and the easy version is just as good and has a better texture than any of the versions I have put up in jars.
No matter what you do to those, they cook in the canner and the texture gets mushy. With these, “easy Pickles” the pickles stay firm and crisp/tender like you want your pickles to be.
…But I Am Smart
So I changed the name of the recipe to “Easy Pickles” – maybe they could also be called “Smart Pickles” because a smart lady knows that saving time and effort is brilliant, not lazy!
So put up some pickles and then go read a good book!
We often adjust the recipe according to how many cucumbers we have since we have more than one gallon jar and can make a double (or triple) recipe.
These do not need to be refrigerated.
Prep time is super fast, but they are not “quick” pickles, since they need to set for 3 months.
- These are so easy and delicious that my husband will make them all on his own – but they are fun to make together too.
- They have no artificial colors added and you can add only the healthy, organic ingredients that you “approve”.
- You can make up a THM (Trim Healthy Mama) Sugar Free version so you don’t have to purchase the pricey Kosher dills in the fridge section to keep eating clean, healthy and on plan!
Let me know if you plan to try this!
Oh, and let me know if the recipe won’t view or print out right too – I have not had time to update my plugins on this website!
