Can you use any pickle type? Dill pickles are highly recommended and the original recipe; however, any pickle will essentially work. Just keep in mind the more flavored a pickle already comes (like garlic or sweet), the longer the packet Ranch seasoning will need to penetrate for full flavor.Do You Drain The Brine? No, don’t drain the pickle brine before adding the dry Ranch seasoning powder.How long will pickles last? Once opened, these pickles should keep up to 3 months refrigerated. If you have leftover pickles from another batch, toss ’em back in your refrigerator until needed again.Expert Tips
Do not expect the pickles to have a HEAVY flavor of Ranch. After only 24 hours, these jar dill pickle spears still carry a lot of the original brine flavors with a hint of Ranch. The balance is excellent and not overpowering. While our Ranch pickles didn’t last long in our house, try leaving them past 24 hours or doubling the seasoning packet to work on a more robust flavor if you prefer.
While the original TikTok pickle recipe uses a jar of pickle spears, try pickle slices (pickle chips) as well. Dill pickle hamburger chips or butter pickle chips might be a fantastic way to test out the idea of ranch pickles.
