Summer is such a bountiful time of year. If you don’t have a garden bursting with veggies, then your neighbor surely does and of course they want to share. This refrigerator pickle recipe is super simple and super fast because whats the catch 22 of Summer harvests? That’s right, Summer heat. Nobody wants to be slaving in a hot kitchen canning pickles. This recipe requires only your refrigerator to “pickle” the cucumbers. No heat necessary.
Read on to find out how to make a batch of these tasty pickles super quick.
This pickle recipe is super easy and super tasty! The pickles are an interesting combination of both tangy and sweet. They come out nice and crunchy. You barely need any ingredients to make them either. My Dad loves to garden, so every year he has plenty of extra veggies to hand out to family and friends. I use the cucumbers he gives us to make batches of these. There isn’t really any limit on batch size either. It really just depends on how big of a container you have. This recipe easily doubles and triples if need be.
You can put these pickles on hamburgers and sandwiches, or as a side with any number of meals. My pickle addicted daughter likes to eat them straight from the container and in large quantities. It’s lucky for me that it is so quick and easy to whip up a new batch. If you don’t go through pickles very fast, you are in luck, because they will keep in your refrigerator for up to 3 months. Once you try these though, you and your family will be addicted too I’m sure and they likely won’t last anywhere near 3 months in your refrigerator!
TIP: If you find yourself with an abundance of cucumbers that is more than your family will be able to eat, this recipe could easily and inexpensively be used to make multiple containers to give away to neighbors or family members at your next gathering. Just buy some disposable Ziplock containers and fill them up!
