Why make your own homemade pickles? Is it a cheaper alternative to buying pickles? Do they taste better than store bought? Are they difficult to make from scratch?

I make homemade pickles because there is something more satisfying about biting into a fresh homemade pickle.. somehow if I make them myself they seem to taste SO much better. I make mine with garlic instead of dill. Maybe that is why I love them so much?

But is it a cheaper alternative to buying store canned pickles? Well the answer to that depends on prices in your local grocery store. Please see below for the necessary ingredients to make these, and decide for yourself the answer to that one.

This pickle recipe is easy, fun, and makes a damn good pickle!
