Easy Refrigerator Quick Pickles

I’m typically not a huge fan of sweet pickles, but I tried these homemade pickles last week at church and was so crazy over them, I just had to come home and make them myself! This recipe is in our church cookbook (from about 10 years ago) by a lady I love very much and who is one of the best cooks I know. 

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 long english cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon salt 
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon of celery seed or mustard seed (optional)

Instructions:

  • Place thinly sliced cucumbers and onions in a large bowl.
  • Sprinkle with salt and use hands to toss and ensure they’re thoroughly coated.
  • Cover bowl and refrigerate for at least two hours.
  • Take out of the refrigerator and drain.
  • In a pot on the stovetop, stir together sugar, apple cider vinegar, and water until sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Pour vinegar solution over cucumbers and onions, cover, and refrigerate.
  • Enjoy the next day! Yum!

I did not use the celery or mustard seed this time because I didn’t have any but I definitely will next time (and I’ll make these again, for sure!) because I think that would add just the right flavor. Consider this your warning – if you get a cute little jar of pickles from me for Christmas, don’t be surprised! Yummm ya’ll! Just YUM!
