Fridge Pickles

Fridge Pickles in the making

I spent the day with visiting with an old college friend at her parent's house in Connecticut. They have the most amazing garden and they sent me home with an abundance of fresh vegetables and flowers. Along with the huge bag of cucumbers, her mother gave me a recipe for "Refrigerator Pickles". So easy to make and so delicious. Here's her recipe...

-- 7 cups of sliced cucumbers
-- 2 medium onions, sliced
-- 1 green (or red) pepper, chopped or sliced
-- 1 tablespoon salt
-- 1 cup apple cider vinegar
-- 2 cups sugar
-- 1 teaspoon celery seed

Mix together salt, vinegar, sugar and celery seed and add to the sliced vegetables. Refrigerate and stir 2 to 3 times the first day. Keep refrigerated in a covered jar. Yum!
