    Pickles have never been my thing. I wish they were. Relatively low calorie and low fat with vinegar that has loads of health benefits, they just hadn’t been.

    Although I’m willing to try new flavors on the off-chance I will fall in love. I soon realized that I just don’t care for store-bought pickles, but good, ole, homemade pickles were fantastic!

    After having a similar sweet and spicy pickle chip on a burger and from a seller at a Farmer’s Market and then again at a local hamburger joint, I decided to try and make my own refrigerator pickles with honey and habanero.

    Total disclosure: I have never canned or pickled anything, so making Honey Habanero Pickles was a new experience for me. The instructions I found online for refrigerator pickles seemed to be fairly straight forward, so I just decided to play with the ingredients a little to make them my own craving of sweet and spicy, honey and habanero.

    Tools for making Honey Habanero Pickles:

    Mason Jars– even if you don’t plan to make a big batch, get a bigger jar than you think you need.

    Funnel– You’ll want this to control the pour of brine into the mason jar.

    Mandolin Slicer– If you want fun chips with grooves, you’ll need to cut them with this bad boy!

    Course: Appetizer, Condiment, Side Dish
    Cuisine: American
    Keyword: homemade pickles, sweet and spicy pickles
    Servings: 2 pints
    Calories: 480 kcal
    Ingredients
    • 4-5 pickling cucumbers approximately .75 pounds
    • 3 cups water
    • 3/4 cups distilled white vinegar
    • 3/4 cup honey
    • 1 teaspoon whole mustard seed
    • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
    • 2 habanero peppers stem removed, cut into fourths (remove seeds for less heat)
    • 2 garlic cloves peeled
    • 2 teaspoons whole white peppercorn
    Instructions
    1. In a medium sauce pot, combine water through Kosher salt. Bring to a low simmer, stirring until all ingredients (except mustard seed) are dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
    2. In the bottom of two 16 ounce mason jars, place habanero, garlic and peppercorns, dividing evenly.
    3. Cut cucumbers according to preference, either sliced with a mandolin slicer or into spears. Divide evenly in mason jars.
    4. When cooled, divide liquid into jars. You might have more than you need, that is fine, just discard it.
    5. Screw on tops and place in refrigerator.
    6. The amount of time it will take for them to "pickle" depends a lot on the size of your pickle. Mine were rather thin and cut into 1/2 inch disks, which took 10 days. Thick pickles could take closer to one month.
