How To Make Homemade No Salt Pickles

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Whats a pickle without salt?! Well let me tell ya these are supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

When I was pregnant I went through an entire jar of pickles in about 2 days flat. Total pregnancy cliche..but I really was addicted. I would always wake up with total bloat face..not a good look let me tell ya! I am SO sensitive to sodium and I bloat up like a mini hippo whenever I eat too much of it. So when I discovered homemade no salt pickles a few weeks ago at my Dad's house I was hooked!

The secret to no salt pickles is apple cider vinegar. I am a huge fan of this stuff but who knew that you could make pickles with it!

What you will need:
  • 2-3 large cucumbers
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Mason Jar
Cut the ends off the cucumbers and slice into long pickle like slices.

Place the pickles into the mason jar and pour the apple cider vinegar in until it reaches the very top of the jar. Fasten the lid on tightly and place in the fridge. Wait about three days for the apple cider vinegar to infuse into the cucumbers and your pickles will be ready!

Soo delicocus! You would never even know that they are salt-less!

Unsalted pickles? I've never heard of such a thing! Very interesting, I wonder if I make them without telling the hubby if he would notice much of a difference? Thanks for the tip!

I"m so glad you posted this!! I want to make a batch for my mom for Christmas (she could eat pickles all day long) but have been too lazy to find a recipe. I bet they are 10x better than what you find in the store!!

Jen said...

Jennifer said...

If it was nutritious I swear I would eat a pickle for every snack, every day! I will definately have to give this a go.

Sarah said...

wow this is so good to know. I was a pickle person too while pregnant and I also bloated up a lot. I had permanent cankles. It was so bad that I didn't recognize my ankles after birth when they slimmed down again lol.
