Here’s a quick recipe that we used to make at home all the time. Our very dear family friend Barb taught my mom to make instant pickles with rice vinegar. All you do is peel and slice your cucumber, pour rice vinegar over it, add a liberal amount of black pepper, and let them sit for 30 minutes or so.
A note: They turned out really strong this time. Next time I might cut the vinegar with a little water if I want to eat them plain. But on sandwiches/burgers they tasted great! I really love pickles and am thinking of experimenting with real dill pickles. But maybe I’m better off just buying a jar of Claussens and calling it a day?
