Refrigerator Dill Pickles

Here is the recipe for the refrigerator dill pickles that we made from that HUGE pile of cucumbers.

The recipe is for a gallon jar, so scale it based on the size of jar you plan on using.

Sliced cucumbers.
2 heads of dill
2 large onions sliced thin
5 cloves of garlic sliced
1 qt bottled water
3 cups of vinegar
1/2 cup canning salt

Boil the water, vinegar and salt just until the salt is dissolved.
Pack the jar with all the vegetables.
Pour hot liquid over vegetables.
I let the jars cool a bit on the counter, then put wax paper-lid-lid ring.
Cool on the couner and then store in the fridge.
Wait at least 24 hours before enjoying.IMG_3565 IMG_3567

  3. Of course I'll have to try this - but with store bought cucumbers. My measly little plants only produced 2 cucumbers this summer and I ate those the second I could.
