A twist on traditional pickles, these dill spears are made with zucchini. Zucchini refrigerator pickles are garlicky, a little bit spicy and taste much better than store bought pickles.
I promise this is going to be the last zucchini recipe for a while. My zucchini plants have stopped producing, but I still have a few squash hanging around, and I just love how ridiculously easy (and delicious) it is to make refrigerator pickles.
Not only do homemade pickles taste much better than store bought pickles, they are made with real wholesome ingredients. Have you ever read the ingredients list on store bought pickles? You might be surprised at what you see. . . food dye? It’s just a pickled cucumber why does it need color? The best thing about this recipe is that there is no cooking or canning involved. Just wash the zucchini, cut them up into your favorite shape – I like spears because they easily fit into the jar.
Stuff them into a Mason style jar – wait for a day, and that’s it! If zucchini isn’t your thing, this recipe works with cucumbers too. These pickles can be stored in your refrigerator for up to three weeks, that is if they last that long! Try serving them with a mushroom veggie buger or a red white and blue burger
- slice the zucchini into spears and place in a 1 quart mason jar
- add the remaining ingredients making sure that the spears are totally emerged in water
- place secure lid on jar and gently shake, and placejaron counter for 12 hours
- turn the jar upside down for 12 hours more (I recommend placing it in the sink)
- serve immediately - will keep in fridge for up to 3 weeks.
