Day 181 - Overnight Pickles.

Day 181 - Overnight Pickles.

Oh, hi! Well, it's officially full on summer. I was just thinking it would be great to get outside and create a project to enjoy the summer today. After going through my editorial calendar, no project was just right amount of summer. When I took a break to water the garden, I noticed some of our cucumbers were ready for the picking. Snapping off those large, green prickly veggies brought back childhood memories. Every summer about this time of year, we would make Overnight Pickles using the bounty of cucumbers from the garden. Overnight Pickles are sour, a little sweet and whole lot of delicious. They go amazingly well with every dish summer has to offer.

Today's project is to create a batch overnight pickles. That's it!

Overnight Pickles

  • 3/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper chili flakes
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion (optional)
  • 2 medium sized cucumbers peeled and sliced thinly

Mix vinegar, water, salt, chili flakes and sugar together in a large jar. Add the red onion and cucumbers and let sit overnight. Enjoy them with a buttery ear of corn or a side of fried chicken.

Let me know how your pickles turn out and see you tomorrow, big dill!
