fresh from the garden

It's been a busy time in the kitchen lately,
and with fresh pickling cucumbers from the garden this week,
I decided to make some refrigerator pickles...

I brought these straight in from the
garden to the cutting board within minutes...
I used a combination of this recipe, which I
used last year, and this recipe,
which I hadn't tried before.
I did cut back the sugar a little.

Instead of jars, I'm trying them in some of
my old refrigerator glass containers.
I love picking these up cheaply from yard
sales and using them for food storage
rather than plastic.

Hope you're staying cool--the heat index
was over 100 F here yesterday,
and I was melting--very hot for us
northerners, but just what we look
forward to after a long cold winter!

    Your cucmbers/pickles look good!  I like your idea of the glass containers.

    I love pickles! I just did a post about refrigerator pickles not to long ago! I also love that dish, I'm going to have to look for some.

    I really need to pickle some of our cukes and stop eating them right away. They're just so good! I think I may hold back a bit and try one of those recipes.

    I love refrigerator boxes, too =-)  I'm going to the farmer's market this afternoon and now, since your post, I am going to get some pickling cukes if they have any and make pickles!

    The cucumbers certainly look yum, I too love those old glass containers, did you know here in Australia you have to pay $30-$40 for one of those - seriously!

  7. You can enjoy cucumber sandwiches in the heat!

    I wouldn't mind some of your heat, it's windy, cold and rainy here.

  8. I've been picking up the fridge containers for years!

    Don't guess I realized how easy it would be to pickle the cucumbers. I like the second recipe you found the best. Now I need to get some cucumbers and try this. Our garden didn't make it through the drought and the hungry deer (they jumped all the fences).

  12. After a long time without rain, it finally rained here a bit the last two
    days. My cucumbers are doing very well considering. Best wishes with the
    pickles :-)
