Refrigerator Pickles

September 20, 2010

With the garden this year, I had quite the bounty of cucumbers. Now, I love me some cucumbers, so for the first few months, I just ate them.

But even I have a cucumber limit.

When I reached it, I found this recipe on Delicious Melicious for refrigerator pickles and jumped on it because it literally took 5 minutes! Love that!
