How to Make Cucumber Pickles ~ 4 Different Methods and Recipes


"Carolyn picked up the pickle dish-- green glass, with a leaf design on it.
"Do have some pickles," she said,
acting as polite as Mama did when special company had come."
~ Loula Grace Erdman, The Wide Horizon

Our family loves pickles! As we usually have a large harvest, we enjoy preserving them in a variety of ways. Even if you are lacking time, there are many recipes which don't involve the canning process. Here is a list of our favorite four methods of pickle making.


And finally, you can make fermented pickles with no canning required!

These will be the healthiest of the group because of the probiotics they contain.

I used the recipe at Deep Roots at Home though my fermenting method involves the Fido jars.

To me, it is much simpler as you don't need to worry about skimming the top, just follow the concept here!

We like to let our cucumbers ferment for 2 weeks before we refrigerate them.

Perhaps I will share a step-by-step tutorial of our version in the future.

Happy pickling!

  4. Thank you for sharing your recipes. Those pickles look delicious. Oh, I'd love can some pickles, but our harvest of cucumbers this year was practically non-existent. Ah well, some years are like that. I can't wait for fall. ;)
    Have a great day!

    1. I hear you! We have no problem with the cucumbers as of late but our tomato harvests the last few years have been complete flops! God willing, there is always the next year!
