Easiest Pickles Ever

by adustyframe ~ July 31st, 2008

Another yummy recipe from the Amish cookbook. My cucumber vine is plentiful and I’ve eaten too many cucumber sandwiches lately so I had to find something to do with them.

I’ll say that the Amish recipes aren’t the most healthy you can eat, but they sure are good!

I halved this recipe. I put everything in a Tupperware bowl and put it in the fridge. I think I’ll just add cucumber slices as I pick them from the garden. They aren’t pickled yet, but I snacked on a few and they are yummy! *Edited to add this morning–they’re even yummier!**

Refrigerator Pickles

4 c. apple cider vinegar

1 1/2 tsp. celery seeds (I didn’t have them so I skipped them!)

1 1/2 tsp. turmeric

4 c. sugar

1 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds

1/4 c. salt

This needs no boiling. Just mix ingredients, add cucumber slices and place in the fridge.

They will keep for months.

*I put 6 garlic cloves, peeled and cut in half in the brine. Super!*

*I just thought how do they have a fridge?*
