There is something incredibly satisfying about making your own sweet pickles and coming to the realization just how easy and fast it is to do so. If you’ve ever been intimidated by the bombardment of complicated canning videos and equipment, then this recipe is made for you.
Pickled sweet cucumbers need just twenty-four hours to meld all the flavors together so you can start snacking. These aren’t the store-in-the-pantry-and-keep-until-the-apocalypse type of pickles though. These are meant to be consumed right away and will last about a week or two in the fridge. Although – let’s be honest – once you taste them they won’t last very long!
This quick and easy recipe recommends De Nigris’s crisp and delicious white Modena vinegar with Balsamic. It has a natural sweetness that is a perfect compliment with the added touch of powdered stevia – making this a low carb pickle for those on the KETO diet.
The recipe makes two pint-sized jars. One for a friend and one for you.
