Freezing marinated crisp, firm veggies is a quick, tasty way to preserve veggies like cucumbers, peppers, carrots, and cabbage. Once thawed, they can be kept in the fridge for a few days.

Ingredients

  • 2½ pound cucumbers, cut into rounds or slices
  • 3 tablespoon pickling or kosher salt
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • ⅓ cup minced fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon whole dill seeds
  • 1 cup chopped or sliced red pepper (optional)
  • 1½ cup sugar
  • 1½ cup cider vinegar

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, toss the cucumber slices with the salt. Let the cucumbers stand for about 2 hours to release moisture and drain.
  2. In another bowl, combine the salted cucumbers, garlic cloves, dill and dill seeds, chopped red pepper, sugar, and vinegar. Refrigerate the mixture for a few hours so the cucumbers have a chance to absorb the flavors of the brine.
  3. Remove the bowl from the fridge. Pour the cucumbers and brine in freezer bags or containers and store in the freezer. Thaw the pickles for about 8 hours in the fridge before serving.
