Refridgerator Pickles

I make these pickles quite often and they are always a huge hit whenever I serve them. A batch rarely lasts more than a few days, but they can be kept in the fridge up to 2 weeks.

6 cups thinly sliced cucumbers

1 cup thinly sliced onion

Place into a plastic container.

2 cups sugar

1 cup vinegar

1 tsp mustard seed

1 tsp celery seed

1 Tbsp salt

Bring brine to a full boil on medium heat. Pour over cucumbers in plastic bowl. Let cool to room temperature on counter. Cover with lid and store in fridge for up to 2 weeks. Let chill for at least overnight before eating.


  1. This is a super recipe. I tried making mine with apple cider vinegar and it gave them a really great mild flavor.

  2. So, I just tried making them. Now, I have to wait until tomorrow to try them! I'm excited! I guess I will have to hide them from Danny so he doesn't eat them until they are ready. Do you think the LB would give me a scholarship to come out and complete an "cooking, canning, and homeschooling" internship under you??? Maybe???
