Homemade Refrigerator Pickles
If you’re looking for a super easy recipe for refrigerator pickles than you found it. This recipe makes only two small jars of pickles. No need to dig out your water bath canner either, they don’t require a hot water bath. This recipe is perfect when the pickle urge strikes on a hot day. Since this recipe only calls for using two cucumbers, you can make these all year round too. Besides needing two cucumbers this recipe calls for water, white wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, salt, sugar, onions, garlic, green peppers and jalapeño peppers. You don’t need to spend all day in the kitchen making pickles when you can make these in no time flat.
Bread and Butter Pickles
Several years ago, in fact now that I think about it, it was eons ago, my then sister-in-law Lynn made a batch of bread and butter pickles. They were the best pickles I had ever tasted. She kept the pickles in a large glass bowl in the refrigerator and the pickles were “self-serve” I think the recipe was from her mom LaVerne. Anyway, that summer I made bowls of pickles, therefore I ate bowls upon bowls of Lynn’s sweet bread n’ butter pickles. I’ve never said this to anyone before but I have never eaten or made them since. I ate so many of Lynn’s bread n’ butter pickles that summer I can’t even look at bread n’ butter pickles anymore. In fact I don’t even like pickles that much anymore.
My Family Loves Pickles
My family loves pickles. Everyone from my hubby, down through my grandkids are crazy about pickles. There is always a tray of pickles serve at our family gatherings. When I made Dill Pickle Dip they went nuts. I made “homemade” dill pickles and they went crazy for them too. Here’s the recipe: Grandma’s Dill Pickles.
