Mmm, pickles. Did you know that each year Americans eat more than 2.5 million pounds of pickles? So we’re certain when we say “Mmm, pickles,” that most of you out there are nodding in agreement.
Did you also know the average individual American eats 8.5 pounds of pickles per year all by themselves…that’s a lot of gherkins!
So we’ve got a treat for you, Average Individual American, today we’re going to share three very different recipes for pickles. That’s right…
Today we’re learning how to make pickles and yummy pickle dishes with our own two hands!
First up: Quickles. These thin slices of heaven earned the name “Quickles” because they are so quick and easy to make!
Nothing is better on a hot summer day than coming inside and opening the fridge to grab a jar of fresh, cold, delicious homemade Quickles! This also applies if you have just stayed in the shower too long, or are sweating buckets after working out.
And speaking of working out, did you know pickle juice is actually a better way to replace electrolytes after working out than sports drinks? Did you also know that a whole large pickle (4 inches long, uncut) averages only 16 itty-bitty calories?
Pickles are practically a superfood, people! So get to chopping some cucumbers, and make yourself some Quickles.
Check out the video below for the super simple step-by-step, and don’t forget to download the recipe cards we’ve created so you can save this winner forever!
Bacon AND Pickles? Mind. Blown.
There are just no other words necessary here. Except to say that these are the opposite of a feel-good post-workout food. And we mean that in a good way.
Pickle lovers, you're going to freak over Bacon-Wrapped Pickles.Full recipe: http://dlsh.it/zHvmrrD

Classic crispy Pan-Fried Pickles
No pickle recipe sharing is complete without taking a trip down Classic Lane. Do not be intimidated by the idea of frying something – if you can make a grilled cheese, you can pan fry a pickle.
Fried pickles are simply tops. So for you Pickle Purists out there who have never tried them, and for you fried-is-my-favorite pickle friends of ours alike – give this classic recipe a go.
Bon appetit, friends, we are off to get a fresh jar of Quickles in the fridge!
