Refrigerator Dill Pickles


I picked the last of my cucumbers today from my garden and decided to make some refrigerator dill pickles. Angie had posted our grandma's pickles Simply Grandma's Refrigerator Pickles for sweet pickles, so I thought I would try some refrigerator dill pickles. I found a recipe on growveg.com so I decided to try it. It worked great! Even though canned pickles are my favorite, we liked these and they worked great on sandwiches!

Refrigerator dill pickles: 

4-5 washed, sliced cucumbers
1 cup white vinegar
1/4 c water
1/4 c sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2-3 cloves peeled garlic
  1. Place sliced cucumbers in glass gallon jar. 
  2. Heat the brine mixture in small pan just enough for the sugar to dissolve. 
  3. Pour over the sliced cucumbers.
  4. Add 1 teaspoon dill or about a handful of seeds, leaves or flower heads.
  5. Add 2-3 cloves peeled garlic.
  6. Shake gently. 
  7. The liquid will not cover your cucumbers, that's ok. They will settle down in the jar as they sit in the refrigerator.
  8. I didn't open mine for a three days. If they are still too sour, wait a couple more days.
Love and peace,
