Homemade pickles are super easy to make, and are fun to flavor in different ways. In How To Make Pickles, WNYC takes us to Brooklyn Brine where they walk through how their dill pickles happen — all you’ll need are some cucumbers, spices, brine, and a week’s time.
Just combine 1 1/3 cup white vinegar and 1 cup water in a saucepan over heat, then dissolve in 1/3 cup granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons of kosher salt.
Stir, boil, and cool it, then pour it into a jar of fresh, quartered cucumbers along with dill, garlic, and whatever else you’d like to add. Keep it in the fridge for a few days and then try them!
