Simple Homemade Pickle Recipe

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.


Cucumbers (mini) – Enough to fill a jar

For Brine Solution:

Apple cider vinegar

2 tbs large grain Himalayan salt

Dried or Fresh Spices Blend:



Mustard Seed



[Optional, but great if you can add it] Fermented probiotic paste

Fresh Herbs:



To make them extra crunchy:

Powdered Coral Calcium

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


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.
