Pickles

tami_ohioAugust 5, 2014

We stopped at a nursery yesterday that had fresh produce. DH bought 10# of tomatoes, I bought 3 small zucchini and a qt of pickling cukes. We made 2 pint jars of refrigerator pickles. DH decided to put some fresh dill in one jar. I wouldn't let him put it in both jars in case it didn't work. His mom made the refrigerator pickles all summer.

Does anyone have a good recipe for refrigerator DILL pickles? I don't want to do any I have to crock, ect.

Tami, I like this one. It's higher in vinegar than LKZZ' pickles and comes from skeip, who posts here sometimes. I'm not a huge fan of dill pickles but Elery and Ashley both love these. I know you can't have the garlic, I'd leave that out.

THE BEST REFRIGERATOR PICKLES

4 Cups thinly sliced Cucumbers
1/2 Medium Onion, thinly sliced
3 Cloves Garlic, sliced
1 Teaspoon Whole Black Peppercorns
1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt
1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup White Vinegar
1/2 Cup Water
3 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Dill, or three Dill Heads

In a small saucepan, combine Water, Vinegar, Sugar and Salt, bring just to a boil and shut off heat.

In a quart jar place Peppercorns, Garlic, half the sliced Cucumbers, the Onion and Dill, and the rest of the Cucumbers, in that order. Pour in the hot Brine, leaving 1/4 inch headroom. Use a chopstick or knife to remove air bubbles. Store in the refrigerator. Best if allowed to stand a day for the flavors to come together. Makes one quart.

Well I lost that post.

Thank you both! I will give them a try. Our batch is ready to try. Maybe tonight. The only dill pickles I can buy are Mt Olive brand. Good old Vlassic uses garlic but doesn't list it in the ingredients. Opened a jar a couple of years ago and the whole kitchen reeked.
