I really wanted some dill pickles, which you cannot find in the normal super market in Sweden. I think the pickles here taste awful!
I had some snack cucumbers, so I thought I would try to make a quick version without letting them sit for several days since I wanted some right away for a sandwich.
I added 1/3 cup water and 1/3 cup vinegar in a pot and let it boil. Meanwhile I added some mustard seeds, frozen dill, a crush cloves of garlic, some red pepper flakes, salt and just a touch of sugar.
I let it boil for 10 minutes.
Next I put the cucumber in a bowl and the ones I wanted to eat right away, I cut in half. Then I poured the water/vinegar mixture over the cucumber. I let it sit for 10 minutes and then I ate the halves cucumber in my sandwich.
It definitely didn’t taste like a traditional dill pickle yet but I enjoyed the flavor, so I would recommend this. 😋🥒
The rest I’ll leave in the fridge for up to a week.
