This is a great refrigerator pickle recipe. In just 24 hours you have great tasting bread-and-butter-style pickle. I grow my own pickles during the summer and love to make these for my friends and family! They never last the full 3 weeks of the refrigerator shelf life!

Very good and easy. My daughter and I did it together and everything was already in the cabinet. I didn't have jars available but just used other glass storage bowls and I think it was even better because they could keep on marinating. I'm sure we will use this recipe again and again. Thanks!

I love this recipe. I'm still new at pickling and have basically followed the recipe. I'm using the apple cider vinegar and added a little garlic and some homemade hot pepper flakes. They come out sweet and zesty. Will be trying more pickling!! Read More

Make sure you take the rind of full size (not pickling size) cucumbers. It's edible but can be a little crunchy. Not pickle crunchy. These are good. We're enjoying them and they likely won't last three weeks! Read More
