I love pickles! I only became a fan 2 years ago but I am sure glad I did. I first made these pickles last summer and it was a hit with everyone who tried it. My father-in-law was really excited I made them because he told me that growing up his father would always have these in the fridge. His father and mother would love to eat it like popcorn. He said that his dad would keep the pickles in a cool whip container. His father passed away last year and so I thought it would be sweet to make him these summer refrigerator pickles and place them in a cool whip container for him to have this Father’s Day. He was very touched by it and it made me really happy.
These are so simple to make and last for up to 3 weeks in the fridge. You can adjust the different ingredients according to how you like it. I usually keep these in a mason jar but really any container will work.
1 large cucumber, sliced
about 1/2 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons-1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons sugar
pinch of salt and pepper
Slice cucumber and place slices in a container with a lid. Add vinegar, 2 tablespoons water, 2 tablespoons sugar, and salt and pepper. Place lid on TIGHTLY. Shake until well combined. Taste test the liquid and add more sugar, water, or vinegar to taste.
