refrigerator pickles


There's nothing better in the world than brand new Mason jars. Mat bough me 12 regular pint jars today at Wal-Mart. I pulled out three homegrown cucumbers from Mrs. Robena's garden, and went to slicing.

I made homemade refrigerator pickles.*


They are easy-peasy to make. No canning is required. You put onions in the bottom of jars, place sliced cukes on top of the onions, and sprinkle with fresh dill (which I borrowed from my neighbor, Adina's garden pots-- thanks, Adina!). Then, you boil sugar, dill seeds, apple cider vinegar, salt, mustard and pepper and pour on top of the cukes, onions and dill.


They sit, open, overnight in the fridge. When we can eat them, I'll let you know how they taste.

Heavenly, and like summer, I'm sure. Mrs. Robena grows a mean cuke, and adding apple cider vinegar and sugar can only make them even better!

(*Note-- these are slighty sweet dill refigerator pickles.)
