During the gardening season, always be prepared to pickle by stocking up with a few of these gents. We have crafted a wonderful blend of dried California garlic, Pequin chilies, and a robust assortment of aromatics to give you a painless and delicious refrigerator-style pickle. I know what you're thinking...I already have a bottle of pickling spice in the cabinet. Answer me this, how long has it been there? Freshness matters and nobody needs to stock a bottle of pickling spice, since its often way more than you need, and it gets lost into the abyss. Keep it fresh, Keep it classy. Dilly gent is here to help.
Makes enough brine for 2 lbs. of pickles
Directions from the Test Kitchen:
Wash and cut vegetables to be pickled into desired shape and size, pack into mason jars (pints or quarts..we prefer quarts) and set aside.
Simmer 2 cups of water and 2/3 cup of white vinegar along with the contents of the package and 1 tablespoon of kosher salt in a small sauce pan for 10 minutes, then remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Pour brine over vegetables until covered. Seal and refrigerate. Allow 24-48 hours to achieve best results.
