Fridge Pickles

Easy fridge pickles make the perfect condiment for a yummy pulled pork sandwich on a lazy weekend day. And if you are lucky enough to have access to a fresh bolillo roll from El Bollio Bakery on Airline, well then, you have an ultimate lunch .

Fridge Pickles

(makes about 1 quart)

1 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

7 whole cloves

2 bay leaves

1 teaspoon dill seed

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

5 small pickling cucumbers, peeled in stripes and sliced into 1/8 inch rounds

1 small white onion, thinly sliced into rounds

Combine vinegar, salt, sugar, black pepper, cloves, bay leaves, red pepper flakes and dill seed in a quart-sized mason jar with tight fitting lid. Place the lid on jar and shake until sugar dissolves.

Layer the cucumbers and onion in the jar, alternating, and using a spoon to gently press down into liquid to fit tightly in jar. Place lid on jar and shake well. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, shaking from time to time to keep the ingredients well mixed. These pickles will keep in the refrigerator for about 1 month.
