Refrigerator Pickles

This year with all that’s going on with the house, gardening has gone to the wayside.  I had planted some stuff but I haven’t harvested as I should.  There’s just no time in the day.  A week or so ago I made a batch of refrigerator pickles thinking I at least did something.  Today I pulled them out of the refrigerator for the first taste….oh I remembered why I loved them.  Then Hubby said…”Oh you made some!!”   That lead me to make another batch….

Of course then I couldn’t find the recipe that I use so I looked and looked and right then and there I decided that I am putting the recipe up on the blog so that next time I won’t have to struggle to find the recipe.

RefrigeratorPickles
7 cups thinly sliced cucumbers
1/2 cup sliced onions
1/2 cup green peppers (I omitted these)
3 cups sugar
2 cups vinegar
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon celery seed
1 tablespoon mustard seed

Mix ingredients and refrigerate in a container with a tight lid.  Sprinkle 1 tablespoon turmeric over the top of the pickles.  No cooking is needed.  Shake daily.  Ready to eat in seven days.  Keep refrigerated.

These are a long standing taste of summer for our family.
