Easy Homemade Sugar-Free Refrigerator Dill Pickles Recipe

5 from 1 reviews

Easy homemade sugar-free refrigerator dill pickles! This recipe is simple and yields the most delicious crunchy pickles that are fresher and tastier than store-bought!



You will need 2 Р16oz mason jars (or similar) or one tall glass jar that holds around 32oz. 


  1. Clean your jars (and lids) with boiling water and dry. Set aside.
  2. Wash the cucumbers and then slice into spears (my favorite) or rounds.
  3. Add pickles and fresh dill sprigs (if using dry dill I add it to the brine instead – see step #4) to the jar.
  4. Prepare the brine. Add water, apple cider vinegar, salt, dried dill (if using fresh dill I just add it directly into the jar), pinch of red pepper flakes, and minced garlic to a saucepan and bring to a boil to dissolve the salt. Remove from heat and let the brine cool down slightly. Then add to the jar with the pickles, making sure that the brine covers the pickles entirely.
  5. Tightly close up the jars and once they’ve reached room temperature, store in the refrigerator overnight. Pickles will taste better as they age in the brine and soak up the flavors. You can eat these right away but they will not be very flavorful – I suggest letting them sit in the fridge for at least 12 to 24 hours.
