Easy Dill Hamburger Pickles recipe. No canning, no vinegar and they only take 24 hours to pickle!
It’s the beginning of August which means it’s pickle time. The cucumber plants are thriving and we’re picking kirby cucumbers by the basket. Between this and my Half Sour Pickle recipe, I’m all set with my pickles for the next few months.
This pickle recipe is easy and tastes just like the best Dill Hamburger pickles you can buy in the store. You don’t need canning experience because these are no boil needed. You throw them in the refrigerator and they’re ready to crunch in 24 hours. Also this recipe doesn’t use vinegar because you all know my hatred for vinegar, so for all of you who have gotten to this recipe because you typed into Google “I hate vinegar, please give me pickles”, I got you covered. I love these pickles, they’re win win all around.
We’ve been picking a bunch of kirby cucumbers in the garden. We grow our cucumbers in 27 gallon containers and we’re always surprised by how well they grow. We try to pick them before they get too big, but sometimes one giant gets through because we miss him (they’re boys).
Throw your dry ingredients in a bowl and mix them around. If you want to make sure they stay crunchy, make sure to pick up some Pickling Crisp. I get mine from Amazon for $8 and it lasts forever.
