Refrigerator Garlic Dill Pickles

Sandy Bauder


My teenage grandchildren love these pickles and stop by frequently to take home a jar (or more). The amount of garlic and peppercorns are strictly a personal preference. I did make the mistake of adding 4 cloves of garlic to one jar and they were overwhelming.

How to Make Refrigerator Garlic Dill Pickles


  1. Wash and dry jars and lids. Slice cucumbers into desired thickness for rounds, or slice each cucumber in half, then into quarters, lenghtwise for pickle slices.
  2. Combine the water, vinegar and salt, stirring until salt dissolves.
  3. Place a couple of sprigs of dill, garlic clove(s) and peppercorns in the bottom of each jar and pack the cucumbers tightly into each jar until they reach the top. Top with another sprig of dill and fill with water mixture.
  4. Screw tops on tightly and refrigerate immediately. Keep refrigerated for two days before eating. Waiting is the really difficult part!!
