Weekly Recipe: Overnight Pickles January 31 2014

These quick homemade pickles are amazing because, unlike with a traditional dill pickle, you don't need to wait a month for the pickling process to be complete. This fresh take gives cucumber slices a real pickle flavour in just a few hours. They're great on sandwiches or as a snack! We love our pickles garlicky and a little bit spicy, but it's easy to adjust the ingredients based on your own taste preferences.
