Pickle Recipes

Glad you started this thread. I need recipes for small amounts of pickles too. I have about 12 in my fridge now waiting for tomorrow to figure out what to do with them.

I hope someone comes to our rescue

I don't have a bread and butter pickle recipe but I do have a pickle recipe that is very good.

Refrigerator Pickles

9 cups thinly sliced cucumbers
1 cup thinly sliced onion

2 cups sugar
1 cup apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon celery seed
Mix this until sugar is disolved.
Pour mixture over cucumbers and onions.
Put in a container with a tight fitting lid and store in the refrigerator.

Dill pickles

Look for packages of Mrs. Wages pickle seasoning in the grocery store. It is a powder that you mix with vinegar and such. Could hold the extra syrup in the fridge until needed. We have tried two kinds of hers and loved them both. Soooo much easier than stuffing jars with dill. There is a kosher one also. The package was kind of green if I remember right.

8 minute pickles

Found this recipe yesterday.

8 Minute Microwave Bread & Butter Pickles

2 cups sliced cucumbers
1 medium onion, sliced
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp mustard seed
1/4 tsp celery seed
1/4 tsp tumeric

Mix all ingredients in a 2 quart microwave safe large casserole.
Microwave on high for 8 minutes, stirring twice.
Let pickles cool the put in a container with tight lid
and refrigerate.

I haven't tried it but it seems really easy. I picked another 2 dozen pickles in the last couple days. So I'll be pickling tonight!!

In the past I tried Mrs. Wages Kosher pickles and they turned out delicious.

Pickle recipes

Hi all,

Does any one have a recipe for regular dill pickles. I did not plant any this year because the squash bugs ran rapant last year. I will buy pickling cukes at farmers market!

I would appreciate the help!
God Bless,

Linda, the Mrs. Wages has just regular dill pickle seasoning and they are wonderful. You will not believe how easy they are and how good. I don't use anything but that now that I've tried it! Have also gotten several other people hooked on them. I think the packets sell for 1.39 and can sometimes be found in the grocery store for .99 if you watch for sales. Fred Meyer does not carry it as we found out when our grocery ran out and we were desperate.

Kosher Dill (Heinz Recipe)
4 lbs pickling cukes
14 cloves garlic, peeled & split
1/4 cup salt
3 cups distilled or apple cider vinegar 5% acidity
3 cups water
12-14 sprigs fresh dill weed
28 peppercorns
Wash cucumbers; cut in half lengthwise. Combine garlic and next 3 ingredients; heat to boiling. Remove garlic and place 4 halves into each clean jar, then pack cucumbers, adding 2 sprigs of dill and 4 peppercorns. Pour hot vinegar solution over cucumbers to within 1/2 inch of top. Process 10 minutes in BWB. Makes 6-7 pints.

I think these are good. They are not overly tart or salty. The were crisp,too.
