If you're a puzzled pickler like me, there are plenty of easy pickling recipes out there to help you get started. Take our super popular Easy Refrigerator Pickles, for example. They only take about 10 minutes to prepare (plus a few days for chilling in the fridge), require no special equipment, and taste like the real thing.

It's also thrifty, better for you than store-bought (less sodium), and it doesn't let our earth's gracious bounty go to waste.
