A recipe for homemade super easy refrigerator pickles.
Just when you think you’ve washed your hands of making your own pickles, they seem to show up on your counter.
This past weekend at Palambo’s Roadside Market, I was drawn to a large basket of desperate looking pickling cucumbers, sporting a sign that read “due to recent hail storms, pickles by the bushel may not be available this year”.
I now have a counter full of pickling cucumbers that have to be pickled.
I published a family cookbook a few years ago so decided to take a look there for a pickle recipe.
Sure enough I found an easy refrigerator pickle recipe submitted by my cousin Pam. Pam lives in Hutchinson, Kansas. That’s where all of us in our family grew up. You see, my mom had two sisters, Alice and Lois. We all lived very close together and all of us cousins were like brothers and sisters.
Always together with lots of family occasions to gather and celebrate with really good food. Good times. I called my mom and she thinks this is the recipe she always used to make no cook refrigerator pickles.
Back to the pickles. They are in jars, in the refrigerator and now I’m waiting the 5 days for a test taste.
Pam’s Refrigerator Pickles hereinafter referred to as “Tick-Tock Pickles”
I didn’t have a gallon jar, so used smaller jars and just divided all ingredients evenly.
And you know me, I can’t leave well enough alone. I love the Zesty Bread and Butter slices from the store, so threw in some red pepper flakes in a couple of the jars.
This no cook refrigerator pickles recipe was so easy that I had to read the recipe a couple of times to make sure I wasn’t forgetting something.
