Tangy Home Pickles

This is a great way to use up those extra cucumbers from the garden! These pickle slices are tangy and crisp – a terrific summer treat!

In a small saucepan add the following ingredients, stir and heat on high to bring to a boil:
3 cups water
2 cups white vinegar
1/2 cup raw honey
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp turmeric

While brine is heating, prepare and add the following ingredients into 2 – 20 oz. jars (layer onion and cucumber slices to mix it up):
4 tbsp fresh dill, chopped (2 tbsp per jar)
4-6 garlic cloves, sliced (2-3 cloves per jar)
2 large cucumbers, sliced thin (divided between 2 jars)
1/2 red onion, sliced (divided between 2 jars)

Once brine starts to boil turn off the heat and let it cool a bit while you finish preparing the jars. Pour brine over contents in jars – fill to 1/2″ – 1″ below the top, or at least enough to cover the veggies. Let cool before covering, then store in the refrigerator. Allow pickles to sit a few days before enjoying.

Mmmmmm… Delicious!
