Spicy pickles are one of the easiest ways to preserve your cucumber harvest for year-round enjoyment. You can make spears or slices so you can use them on sandwiches, burgers, or just as a snack anytime.

Spicy Pickles

Of course, we think spicy pickles are the best, and we like to experiment with using different chiles to flavor them. Try adding Hatch Chiles for a New Mexican spin on pickles, or use some of the super hot peppers like Ghost Peppers or the famous Carolina Reapers to make a wicked batch super hot and spicy pickles packed with flavor.

We like using fresh dill to make spicy dill pickles recipes – dill is an easy herb to grow in your garden and self-seeds readily. We also love to grow dill to bring in the swallowtail butterflies and beneficial insects to our garden. There's always plenty of dill for the swallowtail's beautiful caterpillars, too! 

You can put a different hot pepper into each jar and have a pickle tasting party! :) Pickles are a nice way to experience the flavor of super hot peppers. 


Spicy Pickles - Cucumber Seeds

Did you know it's a good idea to succession plant cucumbers? Even with short summers, some warm-season crops such as bush beans, summer squash, radishes, and cucumbers can be succession planted. Our spring-planted cucumbers peter out in late summer, so we start seeds for a second batch of cucumbers in 3-4 weeks. This way, we can extend the harvest time and make MORE PICKLES!
