Authentic Amish Refrigerator Pickles
Try pickling this summer with your favorite vegetables. It's simple and tastes amazing!
- 6 cups cucumbers, sliced
- 1 cup green pepper, sliced
- 1 cup onion, sliced
- 1 cup cider vinegar
- 2 cup white sugar
- 1 tsp celery seed
- 2 Tablespoon salt
Preparation time 20mins
Cooking time 30mins
Slice the veggies into 2 quart jars, I like to make layers of them: you can leave out the onions and peppers, if you want, but they are so good! Mix your other ingredients in a large measuring cup, stir well.
The sugar will not be dissolved yet. Pour over sliced vegetables, evenly in each jar. You will finish filling the jars with cold tap water. I shake the jar a few times during the 24 hrs to mix. No need to cook it, ready to eat in 24 hours.
Taste best if eaten within a week or two, but I like to add tomato wedges or slices to this liquid for overnight, when it is close to empty of veggies, use the next day, unbelievable with sandwiches
I have also pickled hot peppers using a batch of this same liquid~They are delicious!
