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.
