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.

After visiting the famous Katz’s Deli in NYC and devouring one of their pickles, chef Shane McIntosh of Ocean Catering went back to Georgia to create his own version of the perfect pickle. Although these sweet and spicy dill pickles rest in a brine for 2 to 3 weeks, they're worth the wait.

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 Asparagus
As a general rule, when it comes to pickling, it should be done when the produce is at its peak and is therefore cheaper. When it comes to pickling asparagus, I don't really follow that rule, though. I usually pickle different varieties of asparagus at the start of the season to preserve the first crop, which have skins that are really succulent and do not need peeling. Pickled asparagus is great as part of an antipasti platter or added to salads when the fresh stuff is out of season. Click here to see 80 Recipes, 24 Vegetables, and 1 Cookbook.

Pickled Ramps
Pickled ramps — come spring every year, it seems like they're on the menu of every trendy restaurant. Well, I'm here to tell you that it's not that hard to do at home; it's pretty much like pickling anything else. Ramps, if you've never had them, are wild leeks that taste a lot like scallions, with a sharp onion-y flavor and herbal notes.Click here to see In Season: Ramps.
