Refrigerator Pickles

or as we call them ~ Cucumbers & Onions.

They are so easy...
and tasty...
and all from our garden. 
I love that!

Peel and slice about 3 medium cucumbers and 1 sweet onion.
Put in quart jar.
Add 1 sprig dill.
In a saucepan, bring to a boil 2 cups water, 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup sugar (less if you want them tangy and not sweet), 1 t. salt, and 1/2 t. pepper.
Pour in jar.
Stick in refrigerator until chilled. 
Relish the taste of the cool cucumbers and onions because it is stinkin' hot outside!

Just so you know, hubby got a hold of this jar before I got the pictures taken.  Be prepared for them to disappear quickly!


  1. Do you leave them in the fridge for a certain amount of time before you open and enjoy or is this something you can eat as soon as they are chilled?

  2. As soon as they are cold, they are ready.

  3. These are a constant in our fridge. Since I was a little girl

  4. Bet they are crisper than the canned. Looks good!

  5. They are good aren't they? You can also omit the water and just add the vinegar and sugar to the jar. Let sit overnight.

  6. yum, yum and good for you too!! :)

  7. Warren's mother used to do that with cucumbers. Hadn't thought of that for years

  8. I think I am going to be referring to your blog quite a bit for summer food ideas when our summer comes again! Brilliant.

  9. Oh cool! You're doing it too :) We just started making these and they are DELICIOUS!
