Simple Homemade Pickle Recipe




Today on Facebook Live we found ourselves in a pretty pickle in the kitchen! It's surprisingly easy to make your own pickles and you can customize based on how sour, sweet, or spicy you'd like them to taste.

Ingredients

Cucumbers (mini) – Enough to fill a jar

For Brine Solution:
Apple cider vinegar
2 tbs large grain Himalayan salt

Dried or Fresh Spices Blend:
Fennel
Pepper
Mustard Seed
Garlic
Coriander
[Optional, but great if you can add it] Fermented probiotic paste

Fresh Herbs:
Coriander 
Dill

To make them extra crunchy:

Powdered Coral Calcium
OR fresh oak or bay leaves (3 or 4 for the whole jar)

Directions

Rinse your jar with boiling water to sterilize 
Make your brine: Add 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar and enough salt so that it's saturated (you should have some salt that doesn't dissolve) 
Add whichever spices you prefer to the jar
Add cucumbers to fill jar, packing tightly
Add coriander/dill to top
[Optional] Add fermented paste
Fill the rest of the jar with purified water
Cover and place in fridge for 3-4 days

Note: Be sure to turn the jar over everyday to get the spices the top of the jar.

Enjoy!
