Y’all! One of my favorites in my summer garden are cucumbers. I use them in my water, to make this awesome Fresh Cucumber, Tomato and Onion Summer Salad, cucumber sandwiches and so much more! But let’s face it! I love Pickles too and what better way to use up the abundance of cukes than an easy Refrigerator Pickle?

How do you make Pickles in the Refrigerator?

Well, it’s just so easy. All you need are a few ingredients and you will have them in a flash. There are no preservatives so they are not designed to last a long time in the fridge but who are we kidding? They won’t need to last, they will be eaten quickly. So here is how simple they are.

~ Ingredients ~

  • 1-2 medium Cucumbers

  • 1 & 1/2 cup white vinegar

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • Water

  • Pinch of Dill

  • Quart Jar

~ Method ~

  1. Use a mandolin or slice cucumbers about 1/4 of an inch thick. Fill your quart jar with as many as you can fit. Sprinkle a little Dill in about halfway. Leave a small space at the top of the jar.

  2. In a medium saucepan, heat sugar, vinegar and salt just until sugar and salt dissolve. Let cool slightly.

  3. Pour over jarred cucumbers and fill the rest of the way with water. You shouldn’t need much water. Leave a little space at the top of the jar.

  4. Place in Refrigerator and allow to steep overnight. Should last about 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Easy Refrigerator Pickles Anytime!

Now, you just can’t get much easier than that. I love to pack these up and give them to neighbors or friends. They are a great take along to your next BBQ date too! What is BBQ without pickles?

If you want to get really fancy, slice some onions and layer them in there too. They are also very good. If you are like me, I always have more cucumbers than I can give away from my garden. While people may not always need the fresh cukes, they will ALWAYS take the pickles!

We hope you will make them and let us know if you love them! As always, we would love it if you shared this recipe with your family and friends. Over to the side on this post and all of the others are handy dandy share buttons. We would sure be grateful if you shared the love!
