This is so simple that I am almost embarrassed to post it. We recently found cucumbers at a super low price, so I bought extra to try a little pickle experiment. I sliced the cucumbers and placed them in a jar of leftover vinegar and spices from a previous pickle purchase (on sale, of course!).
I left them in the refrigerator for three days, and voila! The cucumber slices tasted just like the store bought pickles. We made two batches using the same vinegar mixture from the original jars, but I am sure that you can make even more. Just pay attention to the original expiration date on the jar.
So, you may be saying to yourself that this won’t save very much money. For our family, making just two batches saved $7 that we would have paid for our favorite brand. While pickles are not a necessity, being able to make several batches for just a few cents makes my kids and my budget happy.
If you don’t like pickles, think of another item that you normally buy that you can make more cheaply.
