Make Pickles Right in Your Microwave! Yep, Microwave Pickles

Wait what? Pickles in your microwave? No, really, it’s true, and I had the same exact thought. WHAT?!

For me, pickles and pickling are a process that involves a lot of hard, all-day work, and from what I’ve heard, a lot of sweating, haha. Microwave pickles are here to save you. They’re crisp and flavorful just like how you’d expect a pickle to be. This recipe is for bread-and-butter pickles, but I’m sure you could use it with a dill pickle recipe, too.


Pickled in just 10 minutes. YUM! Great for last minute guests or when you want a healthy snack this summer.
