Updated: Dec 6, 2023

Are you a college student who loves pickles? You're in the right place. We've compiled our six favorite quick and easy recipes that will be sure to satisfy your pickle cravings. They're perfect for enjoying at home on your own, or sharing with friends!




Pickles and pickle-themed recipes have taken the world by storm in the past couple of years. Whether you are enjoying Pickle Pizza at the State Fair or feasting on a Pickle-on-a-Stick at the Renaissance Festival, the prevalence of the pickle in large gatherings has inserted itself into the modern social gathering zeitgeist.




Interestingly, pickles have been a critical component on food throughout history as they were some of the very first foods to be transportable over long periods of time without rotting. The pickling process was a crucial preservation tactic for the first sailors and, well, we wouldn't be making "Minnesota Sushi" today without them!




After these first sailors landed, pickles began taking New York City by storm thanks to a large influx of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe in the late 1800's and early 1900's who introduced kosher dills to. They would pickle the cucumbers by putting them in large barrels with dill, garlic, kosher salt, and water. They were then left to ferment for weeks or even months. Jewish shop owners realized how popular pickles were and began selling them straight out of the barrel on wooden carts throughout the streets of New York City! These delicious snacks have now become a staple side at most Jewish delis!




It wasn't until 1927 when pickle giant Mt. Olive was founded as the first mass producer and seller of pickles in the United States. This company was founded by a wide group of farmers who failed to effectively use their cucumber crop and decided to band together to sell them as pickles. Then, in the 1960's with help from researchers at N.C. State, they unlocked the secret to controlled fermentation making better pickles for all!




Pickles have paved their own way throughout history, and while they have become the punchline of the jarred foods, they deserve to have their own renaissance and we are here for it! Let the Pickle Palooza begin and get yourself some tasty new pickle recipes!




HOT TIP: Bring one (or more 😉) of these yummy pickle snacks to your next tailgate, and you'll please the whole crowd.
