Sweet & Spicy Quick Pickles

Does anyone else love pickles as much as I do? Do you get excited when a bloody mary comes with several different pickled veggies? To me, that salty, vinegary taste is to die for and I think almost any veggie could be delicious pickled, but today we are sticking with the classic cucumber. These are quick pickles so no need to sterilize jars, can, and wait for a long time to devour them. You can call it the cheater method but I like to think of it as the efficient method ;)

Sweet & Spicy Quick Pickles

These are super easy and have a wonderful sweet and spicy flavor. They are great to use anywhere you would use regular pickles (sandwiches, burgers, etc.) and are also great on their own.

  • 1/2 cup Sweet Onion, Thinly Sliced

  • 1/4 cup White Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar

  • 1 tsp Whole Black Peppercorns
  • 2 tsp Mustard Seed
  • 1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp tumeric

    2. Bring all other ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan and stir until sugar dissolves.
