Spicy Pickles

Brine:1 cup white vinegar½ cup water1 tablespoon salt1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns1 teaspoon red pepper flakes1 teaspoon caraway seed½ teaspoon dry mustard 12 Kirby cucumber spears (3 cucumbers quartered lengthwise)1 jalapeño pepper, quartered1 whole clove garlic

Brine:

1 cup white vinegar

1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon caraway seed

½ teaspoon dry mustard

12 Kirby cucumber spears (3 cucumbers quartered lengthwise)

1 jalapeño pepper, quartered

1 whole clove garlic

PREPARATION FOR ALL:

Fill a large stock-pot with water and bring to a boil. Carefully submerge mason jars with their tops in the boiling water and keep them submerged for at least 5 minutes until ready to use.

Combine brine ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and allow brine to simmer for 2-4 minutes before removing from heat.

Thoroughly wash all herbs and vegetables (cucumbers in this case) you intend to pickle before cutting them into the desired shape and size.

Carefully place and arrange the herbs and vegetables inside of the mason jar.

Pour the warm brine over the vegetables until the mason jar is just about full, making sure to completely submerge the items you want to get pickled. Seal the jar while the brine is still warm and allow to cool completely before placing in the fridge.

The pickles will reach their peak readiness in 10 days to 2 weeks and can be stored for up to two months.

Enjoy!
