Best cucumbers for pickles

Believe it or not, but some cucumbers are MUCH better than others when it comes to pickling. We have done our research- and just take our word for it so you don’t end up with gross pickles. We have found that the best cucumbers are, and this may come as a surprise, Pickling Cucumbers! These cucumbers are typically shorter than slicing cucumbers, but there are still a few types to keep in mind.

  1. Boston Pickling Cucumber
  2. The National Pickling Cucumber
  3. Bush Pickle Cucumber

Looking for more ways to use our Pickling Spice Blend?

Although this is called a “Pickling Blend”, there are other great ways to use this product. While it is best when used with sweet pickles, we love it for steamed shrimp and brines for corned beef. You can also try it in savory marinades or with your pot roast and beef brisket recipes.

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles



  1. If desired, cut cucumbers into wedges or slices.
  2. Next, divide the chopped onion between the two jars. Then, pack the cucumber slices horizontally into the jars and top with dill.
  3. In a medium saucepan, add pickling spices, vinegar, water, sugar, salt, and dill seeds. Over medium-high heat, bring to a boil until you dissolve the sugar.
  4. Then, divide the mixture between the jars and chill uncovered for 24 hours. Cover the jars tightly with lids and enjoy for up to 1 week. Keep refrigerated.
