Easy Spicy Refrigerator Pickles (Vegan, Refined Sugar-Free)

Author: Kristen Wood | 4-3-2019

  • prep time: 10 minutes
  • cook time: 5 minutes
  • total time: 1 day (to account for pickling time in the refrigerator)

Yields: approx. 12 pickle spears


Ingredients:


Instructions:

  1. Slice the cucumbers and smash the garlic.
  2. Place the garlic in the bottom of a pint-sized jar.
  3. Pack the cucumbers (vertically) into the jar on top of the garlic. You want to place them so they are snugly fit and will not rise when brine is added.
  4. Sprinkle chili flakes into the jar.
  5. In a sauce pan over low heat combine water, vinegar, salt and sugar.
  6. Heat, while stirring, just until salt and sugar are dissolved.
  7. Pour this brine over your packed cucumbers in the jar until they are just covered.
  8. Let sit uncovered for 10-15 minutes, or until jar is only slightly warm to touch.
  9. Screw a lid on tightly and place in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours before serving.
  10. Enjoy!

I find these pickles can be enjoyed for up to 2 months, so long as there are no signs of spoilage present (mushiness, discoloration, etc.)!
