Meatless Monday: “Quick Pickle Kit” Garlic Dill Pickles for Game Day!


Pickles.  I love them.  They’re great for a snack and the perfect side kick to a sandwich.  There was a time in my life back many years ago that pickles were my favorite late night go to- some people eat pizza, I used to eat pickles.  Full disclosure though, I’ve never pickled a thing in my life….until recently that is. 

A few weeks ago I came across this product called the “Quick Pickle Kit” and I was intrigued.  Mostly because it implied that I could make my pickles “quicker” and also because I thought it would be something I should finally try to do since I’m an adult now and all. So I reached out to the Quick Pickle Kit team and asked if they could send one along so I could give it a try! 

Since I’ve never pickled anything before, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised to find a 2 liter resealable glass jar, a Quick Pickle Recipe Book and pickling spice packets.  

Being the bad busy blogger I am, I totally forgot to take before pictures, but here is their product image so you can get an idea: 

The Quick Pickle Kit

So how exactly does a 2 liter jar and spices (1 tbsp picking salt, 2 tsp dill weed and 2 tsp dill seed) make some quick pickles? Well, you pretty much just add fresh veggies, water and vinegar and you’re good to go!

The method which the kit uses is all natural and contains no preservatives or chemicals just all natural, quick and simple goodness. 

I chose to make Quick Garlic Dill Pickles (yes, I am a dill girl- no love for sweet pickles here).  Actually, I decided that I should pickle a few other veggies too and the recipe book suggested carrots and cauliflower would compliment the cucumbers well so that is what I went with.

After chopping up the recommended amount of veggies, all I had to do was add a mixture of vinegar and water, seal the jar shut and let it sit in a bath of boiling water for approximately 75 minutes (I set a timer to make sure I didn’t leave it sitting there because I would totally do that).  Once the 75 minutes are up, you flip it lid side down on the counter to vacuum seal it then flip it back over and let the glass cool.  Once cooled, my pickled veggie mix chilled out in the fridge for about 3 days and viola, I have myself some quick pickles!

Any guesses what I plan on using them for?! GAME DAY of course (duh)!

These delicious garlicky dill pickles are seriously perfect to munch on for Monday Night Football.  I forewarned you that more football food would be coming and as promised, I delivered.  They would even compliment my Paleo Sweet Potato Sliders quite well if I do say so myself. 

Whether you have no idea how to pickle (me) or are just looking to make some quick pickled deliciousness for your next get together, the Quick Pickle Kit is worth checking into.  It also makes a really great gift for the foodie in your life!  It can be purchased on Amazon for $39.99.  You can also connect with Quick Pickle Kit on Facebook!
