5 minute dill pickles ....

We're in the midst of a heatwave that's been enjoyable since the humidity is low and there haven't been any wicked storms either!  ^^

With the weekend coming up and cucumbers in the garden being plentiful here's a quick and easy recipe for dill pickles courtesy of Chatelaine .  These are delicious and don't last long in our fridge.  Best part is they can be made from the mini cucumbers that are available year round.

 5 Minute Dill Pickles
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup water
½ cup granulated sugar
1½ teaspoon kosher (pickling) salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
3 mini cucumbers sliced into quarters lengthwise (I use 4)

Boil vinegar with water, sugar and salt in a small saucepan.  Remove from heat.  Pour over cucumber spears and dill in a large bowl.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Oh, thank you SO much for the recipe! I never have enough pickles, and I never have enough time to make them. This will solve both problems!
