Hilda's Icebox Pickles

Chef-owner Steven Satterfield of Atlanta's Miller Union uses these easy-to-make briny pickles at the restaurant as homage to his grandmother, Hilda. Unlike a lot of short-brined pickles, the pickling liquid is not heated in this recipe - simply mix and refrigerate. For a stable shelf life, give the pickles a 10-minute water bath after sealing in canning jars.
