Grandma's Pickles

The best pickles in the world.

Course Side Dish
Prep Time 15 minutes


  • 1 pound cucumber
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 0,5 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 2 tbsp mustard seeds
  • dill


  1. Place the cucumber slices in a big sterilised jar (or two smaller ones).

  2. Mix all the rest of the ingredients together and pour it in the jar(s) with the cucumber slices. The liquid won’t cover the cucumbers completely, but in a day or two the cucumber slices should have released enough of liquid to fill the slices completely.

  3. Close the lid. I like to put a little piece of cling film between the jar and the lid to seal it better. Leave the jar in the room temperature for two days shaking it a little once or twice. Place the jar in the fridge and wait a week or two before you start devouring them… If you can.
