Refrigerator Pickles

Refrigerator Pickles

Made some refrigerator pickles yesterday.  I was given the recipe by a lady who lived out by one of our local community gardens.  We used to garden out there when the girls were young.

Refrigerator Pickles
1 gallon

6 c. sliced cucumbers, sliced
2 large onions, sliced
1 green or red pepper, chopped
4 c. white sugar
2 c. white vinegar (in my case I modify it to 1 3/4 c. vinegar and 1/4 c. water)
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. tumeric
1 tsp. celery seed
1 tsp. mustard seed

Chop and slice the vegetables and put in a gallon ice-cream bucket.  Combine the rest of the ingredients in a pot on the stove, stir, and bring to a boil.  Pour over the vegetables.  Cover and let sit in the fridge one week before eating.  Keep indefinitely. (ETA: We’ve never had them last long enough to go bad!)

Aside from the pickles, I also have another Prairie Sky wall hanging finished. 🙂

Today I will be hooking another Prairie Sky wall hanging.
