I can see these being a regular fixture on the picnic table during the upcoming grilling season. What a perfect complement to a platter of barbecued pork, or grilled chicken. These tasted great after just one day, and even better after three.

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Place cucumbers and red peppers on grill, cook until slightly softened, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from heat.
  3. Combine water, vinegar, sugar, kosher salt, garlic, black peppercorns, dill, and red pepper flakes in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and remove from heat.
  4. Pack cucumbers and peppers evenly between two 16-ounce mason jars. Pour hot pickling liquid into jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Screw on lids and let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for 24 hours before serving.

I can't believe more folks haven't tried this recipe! It's amazing! Who would've thought to grill the vegetables prior to pickling? It adds a wonderful slightly smoky flavor to the pickles, and I plan on trying this with other vegetables--carrots & cauliflower to make a grilled giardiniera. You can definitely control the heat in this recipe. If you want less, use less red pepper flakes, more, go all out. THANKS, as always, Chef John!

Okay at best. Grilling is an unnecessary step and softens the cukes. No crunch. My fridge pickle recipe is where I think this recipe would like to be. Also, Kosher salt in canning results in cloudy brine which is unappealing.
