Cheater’s Pickles
These fresh, almost-instant pickles start off with the cucumber slices getting a big chill with a little bit of sugar, which draws out some of their water. Then just a splash of vinegar and a little salt, and you’ve got a really refreshing side dish for barbecues, picnics, or anything fried. They’re great plain, but you can add snipped dill, chives, or mint, or even some thin-sliced Vidalia onion. Excerpted from A Real Southern Cook in Her Savannah Kitchen, © 2015 by Dora Charles.

Use these spicy peppers chopped up in guacamole, with scrambled eggs, on top of tacos, or in sandwiches. (I'm sure you can come up with other creative ways to use them as well.) If you like things spicy, then this is a great ingredient to have on hand in your refrigerator. It takes ten minutes to make and then it just needs to sit unwatched in the refrigerator for 24 hours. You can also make this with other types of chile peppers and slice them into rounds intead of keeping them whole. Click here to see more pickling recipes and tips.

Pickled Jalapeño Burger
There’s nothing better than tangy pickled jalapeños  — except maybe a burger topped with them. This burger gets extra heat from the jalapeños mixed into the beef and the pepper jack cheese melted on top. Make the pickled jalapeños at least a day in advance for the best flavor.

Pickled Peppers 2
Sweet, tangy, spicy, salty, sour — pickles are bite-sized powerhouses of flavor. Since this recipe calls for a quick pickling process (no need to sanitize the jar) the rings of banana peppers stay nice and crunchy. But beware that banana peppers, like many other chile varieties, run the gamut from mild to hot. Its a good idea to taste one before you start cooking and adjust the amount of sugar in your brine accordingly.  Click here to see more pickling recipes and tips.

A great sandwich has a fine balance between salty and sweet. In this sandwich, by pickling the figs you're adding a bit of both sensations. The whole package is rounded out by a meat no one can argue with — proscuitto — and ricotta cheese for a subtle addition of texture and flavor. Picked figs can be kept for any rainy day, but they make an excellent addition to a sandwich like this. See all prosciutto recipes. Click here to see 8 Fantastic Fig Recipes.
