Do I have to boil the brine?

Boiling the brine will help all the flavors meld together. Just make sure your brine is cooled before adding it to your pickles, or else you will risk cooking your pickles.


How Long until they are ready to eat?

The pickles cure right in your fridge and are ready to eat in about a week.


How long will refrigerator pickles last?

Homemade refrigerator pickles will last up to 3 months in the refrigerator, however the longer they sit the less crunchy they will become.
