It's just about time to plant our garden and one thing we love to plant a lot of is cucumbers. We enjoy eating them throughout the summer but what we love best is using them for Refrigerator Pickles. Ever since we started making our own pickles a couple of years ago the store-bought varieties have yet to make their way back into our home.
And with planting season almost upon us, you might want to consider adding several pickling cucumber plants to your garden. These Refrigerator Pickles are simple to make and will stay crisp for months in your fridge. Even if you don't have room for a garden you can probably pick up pickling cucumbers at your local grocery store or farmer's market and give these a try.
The best way to preserve your pickles is in Mason Jars because you will need something durable enough to withstand the heat when you first make them. It's not necessary to use new canning lids so I just reuse the ones from our jars of canned fruit when we are done with them.
