HOW TO make pickles
If you’ve been wondering how to pickle cucumbers, you’ve come to the right place. Making pickled cucumbers is a breeze. All you need is a few ingredients and 10 minutes. This doesn’t include the hour of marinating time, however. Here’s how to pickle cucumbers:
Step 1. Slice the cucumbers as thin and evenly as possible. I recommend using a Mandoline for best results.
Step 2. Stuff as many sliced cucumbers as possible into a large jar, such as these glass mason jars (16 oz). Top with the crushed garlic.
Step 3. Add the vinegar, sugar, salt, water and red pepper flakes (if using) to a bowl and stir until the sugar and salt are dissolved.
Step 4. Pour the vinegar mixture over the cucumbers and marinate for at least an hour to develop the best flavor.
