So my little nephew has me all about pickles, right now. He made us some of the tastiest pickles around (for real, y’all) and we’re working on getting that little project over to you in the next few weeks. I’m not even playing when I say the ones he made us are some of my favorite pickles I’ve ever tried. SO good.

Now my little pickle recipe they’re pretty darn tasty, too. They’re super spicy and only need to sit around for about 24 hours before they are ready to eat. I guess since they are quick pickles you can call them quickles. Love it? I’m not sure about that either.

    Hi. I was reading about your quick pickles and it said they were good for 2 weeks in the fridge but some words were left out on how to keep them for a year.
    Thanks!

      Hi, Penny! You’ll need to jar them in a hot water bath for a good, tight seal to get them to keep for longer. Thanks :)

    Hey Allison! Mike here. So sorry for the super long silence here on your blog. I’ve been away for too long and I wanted to come back and see your awesome crafts! :)

    I love pickles! Your recipe for spicy pickles sounds super! I’m always looking to find new ways to spice up burger night when I’m fixing the fam dinner with my own home made sandwiches. I may have to try this! :D
