Home Made Refrigerator Pickles

It's that time of the year the season of canning. I love to can, beets, pickles and tomatoes every year then stock up my pantry for the winter months. What about you? This is the season all of the fruits and vegetables are in full bloom and the farmers markets are full of all sorts of goodies. The other day I was at the farmers market and they had these beautiful pickling cucumbers so I decided to make refrigerator pickles. I remember as a kid my grandmother used to can all sorts of goodies. So when I saw these beautiful cucumbers I new exactly what I was going to make.

Home Made Refrigerator Pickles Ingredients:
8 small pickling cucumbers
3 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons dill
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup sugar

Wash and clean and cucumbers remove ends and peel carrots.

Score Cucumbers then slice either with Mandalay or Cuisinart.

Then pour on cookie sheet and season with salt and dill let liquids sweat out for 1 hour and a half.

Next make pickling liquid add water vinegar and sugar in pot and bring to a boil.

Prior to placing pickles in large canning jar make sure you clean and boil then place cucumbers in Jar then pour pickling liquid on top.

Place in refrigerator for about 2 hours then serve if you wish or you might wait for a deeper taste you decide.

I served mine on a Hamburger stuffed with blue cheese which I will show later this week.
