Copy Cat Homemade Chili’s Pickles


Ingredients

1 whole cucumber

1/3 cup white vinegar

1 cup water

3 garlic cloves

1/2 Tbs Black peppercorns

1 Tbs Dill

1/4 c salt

1 tsp Crushed red pepper

 

Directions

  1. Slice the cucumber to the thickness you desire. I used a mandolin and sliced them to about an 1/8th of an inch but you could slice them up to a 1/4 in if you please!
  2. Next slice the garlic. Again I used the mandolin, these Try to slice thinner, 1/8th of an inch.
  3. Place the cucumbers and garlic together in a bowl with the salt. Cover with cling wrap and let sit for 4 hours. This will pull all the moisture from the cucumbers allowing the pickles to be crisp!
  4. After they have sat for the full four hours. rinse and drain three times to remove the salt.
  5. In a small sauce pan over medium- high heat combine the vinegar, water and seasonings. Bring to a boil.
  6. Fill a Mason jar with the cucumber garlic mix. Poor the boiling brine into the jar over the mix. Let the jar cool down, then cap and place in the fridge for 2 hours.

  1. My favorite copy cat recipe is Olive Garden Zuppa Tuscana. I don’t have a garden but if I did it would be a bonus. One child likes cucumber’s and another likes pickles. I like sweet and bread and butter ones. Maybe I’ll buy a couple cucumbers and try my hand at making them.

    1. Oh yummy I saw a video on how to make that soup and have been wanting to try it! Pickles are very fun to make I hope you get to try it out!

  2. Hi, Jordyn! I love the simplicity of this recipe. So easy I think I could do it! I did share your post with some family members as well because they were wondering what to do next with their cucumbers. This should make it simple for them! I look forward to trying these πŸ™‚

  3. Yum! I am a huge fan of homemade pickles. But I never do the step to remove the moisture in the cucumbers and garlic. I gotta try that tip out to see the difference! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I could see this recipe being very nice for a bbq! It’s a shame summer is almost over (well it never really started in the UK πŸ˜‰ sorry for the negativity)

    1. Oh thats terrible! It was a year of weird weather everywhere! We only got about 1 1/2 months of nice weather!

  5. Not sure I’ve found a copy cat recipe that’s been spot on – you did good! πŸ™‚ And yes, we always have too many cucumbers. Can’t wait to try this. Thanks!

    1. They don’t pack too much heat! But add in just a little more red pepper and it will be spicy! Even throw in a couple slices of jalapeΓ±os for an even better kick!

  6. As a pregnant woman, this recipe looks amazing! I pinned it to make this week with our abundance of cucumbers. Thank you!

  7. Next time I find cucumbers on sale or someone passes them on from their garden I am going to have to try pickles. My daughter is obsessed with them so might as well make some.
