There are lots of recipes out there for quick pickles and we make lots of them, but this is by far the fastest if you have everything on hand. We fortuitously finished our last quart of dill pickles that we canned last summer this week and our csa provided us with a handful of pickling cucumbers. It is as simple as dropping the new into the old, refrigerating, and waiting a few days.
Note: This is a keep in the refrigerator for a month or so only recipe. You can't re-can with the old juice, it won't have the right acidity.
