Pickles have become an American staple. We eat them on burgers, we eat them on sandwiches… they even come as a side at restaurants! I grew up with store-bought pickles being a common item in my fridge, and they still are to this day! But there is something even better than store-bought pickles, if that’s possible– homemade! Many homemade pickle recipes are not difficult to make and taste amazing. There’s something refreshing about taking a bite and feeling that snap of a homemade pickle!

4 of the Best Homemade Pickle Recipes
1. Refrigerated Rye Pickles
Refrigerated Rye Pickles are your classic refrigerator dill pickle recipe. This is a really easy pickle recipe because there is no cooking or boiling of ingredients involved. Simply add the ingredients to the jar in the order that the directions say, and viola! After 2 days, you have tasty pickles!
2. Bread and Butter Pickles
Some people prefer Dill Pickles, some prefer Bread and Butter Pickles! When it comes down to it, I’m usually a dill kinda gal, but I’ll eat any type of pickle if it’s homemade! These homemade sweet pickles deliver a burst of flavor into your mouth. The secret? A little brown sugar in the brine!
3. Lime Pickles
Pre-soaking these Lime Pickles in lime juice before packing them in the brine gives them a truly unique flavor. This is also under the category of homemade sweet pickles, but the flavor is different than bread and butter. This recipe is also to make pickles in bulk!
4. Tavern Pickle Recipe
For some reason, every time I have a pickle that a restaurant makes in-house, it’s one of the best pickles I have ever had! This Tavern Pickle Recipe is just that. It calls for some unique ingredients such as juniper berry to give it a truly different flavor than most other pickles.

I must admit that I have never tried to cook anything based on pickles, but it’s so intriguing that I may have to try. Another recipe that is not as far-out is this Dill Pickle Pasta Salad. I have had dill in my picnic side dishes like potato salad and pasta salad, but I don’t think it has ever actually included pickles! This will be one to try, for sure!
