Refrigerator Pickles

Our family took a trip out to Garwood Orchard in LaPorte, Indiana last weekend and we picked a few things - green beans, blackberries, peppers, blueberries and pickles. I love to make refrigerator pickles in the summer to grab as a snack or use as a condiment for burgers or sandwiches.

We picked several pounds and I sliced some up and cut some into wedges and put them in jars and plastic containers in the fridge and after a week they are pretty tasty. This is such an easy recipe.

3 cups of water
1 cup of vinegar
1 tbsp. sea salt
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. minced garlic
sprigs of fresh dill (or a couple teaspoons of dried dill)
fresh pickles (I used three large pickles)

Boil your water and vinegar with salt and sugar. After it cools, transfer to a container and add garlic, pickles and dill. Cover and refrigerate for at least three days. Keep stored in refrigerator for 30 days.
