Recipe type: Appetizer

Ingredients
  • 3 quarts thinly sliced cucumbers
  • 1 large onion, sliced thin
  • 3 c. sugar
  • ⅓ c. coarse salt
  • 2 c. white vinegar
  • 1 tsp. each celery seed, mustard seed and turmeric
Method
  1. Put sugar, salt, vinegar and spices in a gallon jar.
  2. Shake well. Add sliced cucumbers and onion. Stir well.
  3. Keep refrigerated and shake or stir well every day for four days. On the fifth day they are ready to eat.
  4. Will keep in the refrigerator for about a month.

It’s nice to have a large glass jar to store these in. I found mine at an estate sale for $4, but this jar (affiliate link) looks like it would work well, and I love that it has a handle. My jar has a rubber seal around the lid, so it keeps the pickles really fresh.

They last quite awhile in the fridge…probably about a month.  (If you take that long to eat them, that is! They are addictive!) So good on turkey burgers or with grilled cheese!

    Found this recipe through Foodgawker & looks great, but I’m a little confused. Your ingredients call for thinly slice pickles, do you mean cucumbers? In the directions, you do say cucumbers, but I just wanted to double check…thanks!

      Yes, cucumbers! The small, pickling kind that you can get in the summer at the farmer’s markets work best. Sorry about that typo!

    I make icebox pickles, but I normally have to cook the vinegar base…. Do you not cook it first ? Thank you.

  1. […] Refrigerator Sweet Pickles – I made these thinking that it might come out similar to the ones that I used to devour from my great grand mother. Yeah….they didn’t. I ate a few of them and didn’t like them. Jeremy loved them. We took them to a friends BBQ and they were devoured by them and a little boy some friends of ours had with them. That was about the only thing he would eat. Jeremy said that they tasted different from the first time I tried them but I didn’t want to have disappointment again so I didn’t try them at all. I’ll attempt more later. […]
