Mona's Easy Refrigerator Pickles

Rated as 4.82 out of 5 Stars

"I got this recipe from an old family friend. She used to make us these pickles when we were kids. It is a really simple recipe, and the hardest part is not eating the pickles before they are ready. You can add pimentos, sliced bell peppers, or whole garlic cloves to the vinegar solution as alternative options."

Excellent. I only used 1/8 cup sugar. Added garlic, and fresh ground black pepper. They were gone in minutes. Tonight I'll add fresh Thai chilies for some heat. YUM
