Sweet and Spicy Pickles
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 2½ pounds cucumbers (about 7 small)
  • 2 small hot peppers, finely chopped
  • 1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1½ cup white vinegar
  • 1½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup honey
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 3 Tbs salt
  • 1 Tbs mustard seeds
  • 1½ tsp celery seeds
  1. Thinly slice cucumbers using a sharp knife or mandoline (just not too thin or the pickles won't be nice and crunchy) and add to a large bowl. Add hot peppers and onions to the bowl and mix to combine
  2. Add remaining ingredients to a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until sugar dissolves
  3. Add cucumber mixture to jars (I used two quart sized jars and a pint sized) and pour pickling liquid over the top to cover. Let sit for one hour to cool and then place in the refrigerator. They should start tasting pickle-y in about 4-24 hours but the flavor will intensify over time.
