Learn how to make spicy refrigerator pickles! This is a traditional dill pickle recipe, ramped up with dried chilis and red pepper flakes. Quick and easy!




  1. Divide garlic cloves, calcium chloride (if using) and chilis into two clean 1-quart glass jars. Pack jars tightly with cucumbers and dill. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, combine vinegar, salt, sugar, water, mustard, coriander, cloves, bay leaves, allspice berries, red pepper flakes and black peppercorns. Bring to a boil, simmer for a minute, then remove from heat. 
  3. Pour the hot brine over the cucumbers, leaving 1/2 inch of headspace. Wipe the edges clean and cover with lids. If desired, proceed to process jars. Otherwise for quick pickles, let cool completely then store in the refrigerator. For best results, refrigerate for 3 days before eating.
