The good thing about making your own pickles is that you can adjust the sweetness to your taste. Serve on the side with burgers!
Commercially made pickles are too sweet or just not to my taste, so I decided to make my own.
Crack the peppercorns roughly. Add some ground black pepper too if you have it. Add the red chili peppers to taste. The pickles are still delicious without them.
