I am frying pickles later tonight, and I would like to pre-cut all my slices to fry. Is there any reason I shouldn't cut them then put them back in the jar for later?

  • May I ask why you want to cut them in advance.

    I just wanted to cut them in advance in order to prepare for a big meal. I realize now that it might have been a dumb question. I ended up cutting them then putting them back in the jar and everything worked out fine!

No, there is no danger.

Just slice the pickles then put them back in the jar or alternatively wrap them in foil and place them back in the refrigerator until you need them.

  • I'd personally avoid foil .... it's not all that long of a time, but in general, acid and metals should be avoided.
