Refrigerator Dill Pickles (Like Claussen’s) Super Crisp!!

There’s no sugar in these. I’m not a fan of sweet pickles.

*Tip… I used small/med garden fresh cucumbers, and they have be sliced into chunks or spears. I’ve tried them whole and they don’t turn out as good.


  1. In a large pan add water and salt, bring to a boil and let cool to room temp.
  2. Scrub your cucumbers and slice.
  3. Place all other ingredients and cucumbers in air tight container, pour liquid over top making sure there completely covered in brine and store in frigerator.
  4. Ready in 5-7 days (we were eating them at day 2 there soo good)
  5. There so crisp!!
