Yum! Sweet Pickles

Another canning day today.  Well, sort of.  These are wonderful pickles that don't have to be processed.  You just keep them in the fridge.  I never really liked sweet pickles much until I tasted these.  They are awesome.  I must have cut the recipe out of the newspaper - somewhere - years ago as it's awfully yellowed.  I tried it last year and watched Bob eat them all.  So this year I thought I would taste them myself.  I decided immediately that he would have to share, so I made another batch today.  There is nothing 'fancy' to learn.  Just throw all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them up.  I have reused some old lids here, but I DO STERILIZE the jars and lids.  It's just that no seal is necessary.  I will share my recipe.
6-8 cups thinly sliced cucumbers
1 cup onion sliced thin
1 green pepper sliced thin
2 T. salt
2 cups sugar
1 cup vinegar (white)
 1 T. celery seeds
I also found a recipe that is almost the same on called Never Fail Refrigerator Pickles (sweet) and they add alspice.  Check it out!  The recipe makes two quarts or four pints.


  1. Those sound delicious! I might try making half a quantity, since fridges over here are a LOT smaller than the standard American one :D, and also I can't see C eating them.

    1. I wish I could send him a handful. I never thought I would like them either, but I think they are almost like eating candy. Yum.
