Easy Amish Pickles~Repost

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?*

    They have gas powered refrigerators. My parents used to have one even though we weren’t Amish. Our was hooked up to the household gas line but they can also run on propane. You can see them here:

    I might have to try that. I have a ton of cucumbers just sitting here because I can’t eat them fast enough. We got quite a bit of rain yesterday so your garden is doing good so far. I will check it tomorrow.

    […] When I came inside, I decided to make a batch of my pickles. I only put in 1 c. of sweetener and used xylitol instead of sugar. We’ll see how they turn […]
