Pickle Jar Crackers: This Easy Snack Recipe Starts With a Sleeve of Saltines

Canola oil poured all over crackers? Hmmm. Yep, that's exactly my thoughts when a friend gave me this recipe years ago. But guess what? These seasoned crackers are crisp – and good! Buy that huge jar of dill pickles and use that after it's empty or buy a jar at Hobby Lobby or Amazon (see links below). Experience with different ranch dressing flavors and seasonings, and be sure to let the kids help stack the crackers and shake the jar. Now time to get your pickle jar crackers on...

You'll need:

  • 1 box saltine crackers
  • 1 package dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1 cup canola oil (no substitutes)
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Here's how to make them:

Arrange the crackers in the jar standing up.

Combine the canola oil, ranch dressing mix and cayenne. Mix well.

Pour over the crackers. Tilt the jar around as you pour to make sure to get in all the cracks and crevices.

Put on the lid. Allow the crackers to sit at least 24 hours, shaking and rotating the jar on and off, until oil is absorbed.

What a fun (and delicious) project! The kids would love this. So, Donna John , how did the chicken turn out?? :-)
Donna John

So Donna - THESE ARE AWESOME!!! Took me 2 weeks after I saw this to get the jar but made some yesterday and can't stop eating!!! Wondering - Have you ever tried other spices? Figured I'd ask before I got too brave. ;)
Donna John
So glad you made them and liked them. Aren't they addicting?? Once I used the Fiesta Ranch mix instead of regular. I think smoked paprika or chipotle might be interesting, too. Now you've got me wanting to make some. You can't be too brave! The good thing about this recipe is that it's super cheap to make, so if they don't work out, it doesn't hurt that much. :-)

L. L. Walters
Yes indeed! Eating some right now... Can't wait to serve them as a football snack! I'll be trying more recipes from Donna for certain. ;)
L. L. Walters
Agreed with both "addicting" and super cheap! Ok... well, I'm going to "brave" it here soon w/ Old Bay on one batch and a combo of lemon pepper & season salt (which btw is fantastic on chicken too). Will let you know the outcome... And thanks again for terrific recipe! ;)
Meredith Schneider
