This is my Grandma Vangie’s tried-and-true recipe for refrigerator pickles.  This is an especially easy kind of pickle to make because you don’t need to worry about properly sealing any jars, and they keep for a very long time in the fridge.  They are also an excellent way to use up some of the lovely cucumbers in your box!


4 cups vinegar
4 cups sugar
8 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons turmeric
2 teaspoons celery seed
2 teaspoons mustard seed
enough cucumber slices to fill a one gallon or 5-quart ice cream bucket
optional: onions and green peppers

Boil the sugar and vinegar.  Let cool.  Wash and slice enough cucumbers to mostly fill up your container.  Add other ingredients to bucket of cucumbers.  When the boiled mixture is cool pour over the cucumber slices and spices.  Cover.

Put in fridge, stir/mix daily for 5 days.  They are then ready for eating.  Store covered in your fridge — keeps a long time (my Grandma says easily for many months).
