These vinegary North Carolina–style pickles from chef Joe Kindred don’t use any sugar. The extra acidity makes them the perfect accompaniment for a juicy lamb or beef burger loaded with cheese. Slideshow: How to Make Pickles

How to Make It


Pack the cucumber, onion and Calabrian chile into a 1-quart jar with a tight-fitting 
lid. In a medium bowl, whisk the vinegar with the salt and 1 cup of water until the salt 
dissolves. Pour the brine over the cucumbers, cover and refrigerate for at least 
2 hours. Drain the pickles before serving.

Make Ahead

The pickles in their brine can be refrigerated for up to 1 week. For longer storage, sterilize the 1-quart jar before continuing with the recipe.
