No Cook Canning Refrigerator Pickles
It has been raining for two days! Last night the power went out and the generator ran for a couple hours. The front paddock is flooded and the horses are covered in mud.However, the gardens are happy! We have loads of cukes.
These pickles are easy to make, easy to keep and you can add to the jar.
It's a sweet and sour pickle made without cooking that will last 2-3 months in the refrigerator. I keep adding freshly cut cucumbers to the jar as they ripen on the vine.
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
1-2 teaspoons celery seed (I use 2)
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups sliced cucumber
3 small onions, thinly sliced
Place sliced cucumber and onions in a large container or bowl. In a separate bowl, stir vinegar, sugar, water and salt together until dissolved. Add celery seed. Pour mixture over cucumber and onions and refrigerate.
Keeps for 2-3 months.
