  • How do you make pickles with vinegar and salt?

  • Prepare the brine: First, heat water in either a kettle, the microwave, or on the stove until steaming hot. Stir in the salt until dissolved, and then stir in the vinegar. I like to add the vinegar last (as opposed to heating it up with the water) to help cool the brine faster. These are quick pickles after all!
