Super Easy Gluten-Free Spicy Pickles

    It's Memorial Day, and nothing is more American than the all mighty Pickle. Whether you place them on burgers or snack em...there just darn good! While were big fans of McClures Pickles - One of the the few brands that is Gluten-Free by using Apple Cider Vinegar, instead of traditional distilled vinegar (which can be made from corn or wheat). We developed this recipe that's not only easy to prepare, but its also easy on your wallet.
Now that's something worth celebrating ^.^


1- 16-20 oz jar

2-3 medium Kirby cucumbers

1 stick of dill

2/3 of a cup of apple cider vinegar

1/2 of a cup of water
