When I saw as part of my assignment to make a fermented food the first thing I thought about was how great it would be to make my own kombucha beverage. Unfortunately, time is of the essence to I decide to make something else, just as exciting which are pickles.

Easy Pickle With Apple Cider Vinegar

Juice Wealthy


  1. Trim, wash and dry all pickle cucumbers and set them aside for pickling.
  2. Add sea salt, apple cider vinegar, and sugar to a small sauce pan and bring to boil.
  3. Add garlic cloves, pepper-flakes to boiling juice.
  4. Add boiled pickle juice to raw pickles inside the mason jar making sure all ingredients are submerged.
  5. Seal with lid and store in refrigerator immediately.
  6. Pickles were place in the fridge for 2 weeks but can be stored for up to 3 months unopened.



Overall, this was an exciting experience. I never thought in a million years I would be making pickles as part of a school project. It didn't quite turn out how I imagined... I was expecting it to look and taste more like store bought but it didn't fulfill my expectations. Next time I would allow it to ferment longer than just two week to maximize the overall outcome. I appreciated the contrast between the sweet and salty with a little kick of spiciness. The crunch was pretty awesome too and the overall smell was pleasant given that apple cider vinegar has a potent scent.
