Homemade Refrigerator Pickles

Ingredients
  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 onion diced

  • 10 to 15 whole peppercorns
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced or diced
  • 2 small mason style jars, sanitized*
Cooking Directions
  1. *To sanitize, place a large pot of water on to boil. Once the water is boiling, place jars and lids into the pot for 10 minutes. Allow jars to cool completely before filling.
  2. Cut cucumbers and jalapenos into very thin slices. Dice onion and bell pepper into small pieces, mince garlic. Mix together cucumber, jalapeno, onion and bell pepper in a medium glass bowl. Add one tablespoon salt. Cover with plastic wrap, allow cucumber mixture to sit for 2 hours.
  3. In a small saucepan add vinegar, water, garlic, peppercorn and sugar. Bring to a boil. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes, turn off heat.
  4. After the cucumber mixture has sat for 2 hours, drain the liquid, reserve liquid. When the vinegar mixture is cool, pour over the cucumber mixture. Fill the sanitized mason jars with the cucumber mixture. Top off with the reserved liquid. Seal the jars and place in the refrigerator.
  5. Leave for 2 days.
