Easy Refrigerator Pickles

    I give this recipe 5 Stars because we can't live without it! I don't make conventional pickles like Mama used to do, but I have to have a jar of these in the refrigerator at all times during cuke season! They are fantastic either with a sandwich or as a side-dish (ala cucumber-onion salad). My husband, who refuses to touch a cuke in any other form, wants them with just about every meal. Beware, though, the turmeric will make the liquid stain your dish-towel, wooden spoon, counter-top... you name it!

    This is a great recipe because it is simple & straight-forward. Can these be canned in a water-bath? I can't eat all these alone, but would like to make & save for later.

    Very tasty; I decreased the sugar to 1/2cup so it wasn't as sweet.

    I ended up making double the amount of the liquid solution because my cucumber/onion mix was only half covered. I also put about one and a half the amount of crushed red pepper for an added kick. Good pickles though.

    Don't know how the pickles will turn out, but easy recipe. Question for those in the know, should the liquid for this recipe cover the veggies? When I put it all together the liquid didn't cover the top layer of cucumber slices. The top layer is just kind of half way submerged.

    I have made these pickles many times. I have given jars of pickles as gifts and everyone loves them. The only thing I have changed is to leave out the red pepper flakes for a milder taste, but the red pepper gives it an extra "kick"that some people really like.

    These pickles tasted great! Not too sweet or salty, just right. I didn't have white vinegar, so used cider vinegar, and they turned out just fine. A nice, easy recipe I will certainly make again.

    Don't worry if the brine doesn't cover--give a stir after about an hour and the cucumbers and onions will

    FABULOUS & EASY TO MAKE. Made last year and couldn't wait for our cucs to come in to make again. They last longer then a month in the fridge.

    This is almost the same as an old family recipe but with less sugar. I add a chopped sweet pepper for color and flavor. To those who asked if the liquid should cover the veggies, the answer is that it will eventually as the cucumbers wilt and give off their own liquid.

    Fabulous although I needed a double batch of brine for the cukes listed. You can also can this recipes, just substitute this brine for any pickle canning recipe

    These are so easy and delicious. I found them a little sweet for my taste, so will probably cut the sugar down to 1/2 c. or less next time.

    These are fantastic. First time making them. I added a little extra red pepper flakes, because we like it spicy. Try it. Super easy and so good. Thanks

    Not a pickle maker but willing to give these a try. i like bread and butter with a little "kick." If you added a little jalapeño, would these qualify???

    I am curious about what type of salt to use. I assume pickling salt.

  • miraoli Posted: 08/29/13

    These are my all-time favorite pickles! They seriously make store bought pickles look shameful, and I suspect these are much better for you as well. I hate all the preservatives that go into our food. (Yuck!!) www.PrintableCouponsandDeals.com has tons of great coupons that could be used on ingredients for this recipe.

    I make these every year and they are extremely easy and delicious! Use a food processor and you are done in a snap.
