I've only made pickled green tomatoes and that was so long ago I don't remember what recipe I used.I make saurerkraut and that ferments naturally.I'm going to make some pickles using a recipe of Alton Browns done in a crock,I'll post it when I find it probably tomorrow.That also sours from fermentation also if I remember correctly.If you don't have a crock you can use a large glass jar also.my brother bought me one from a discount store and it holds about 2 gallons.

Gale...

I remember my Mom made a recipe called Rickel Pickles.  They were a recipe that Don Rickel (comedian) made...boy were they good.  I guess I will try to google. 

But, if anyone has a simple recipe, I would appreciate if you would share with me!

Thanks!

Thanks!  I just got from my Step-Daughter a recipe for Refrigerator pickles along with some to sample...very good!  What I like about the recipe, you do not have to boil or cook or do anything like that.  Make the brine, let them soak and you got pickles.  Let me know and I will post the recipe for you!

This is the super sweet recipe I posted last week.

INEZ SWEET PICKLES (I have no idea who Inez was) approx. 7 pints.

Soak 1 gallon of sliced pickles in salt water (enough salt to float an egg) for 7 days.
Keep crock covered to prevent bugs. If mold forms just scoop it out with hands.

Drain. In large pot with enough water to cover with chunk of alum the size of egg, boil 10 minutes.

Drain. Boil 10 minutes in enough water to cover plus 2 tablespoons ginger. Drain and wash.

Make syrup*, pour over pickles and boil until clear.

Process 5 - 8 minutes at most.

SYRUP ( about 6 cups)
3 lb sugar
1 pint vinegar
SPICE BAG
1 tablespoon All Spice
1 tablespoon whole cloves
1 large stick cinnamon for each jar
1 tablespoon salt.


I made these for years. Good beyond measure. A pickle that tastes like candy.

Hi Susan,I would love to have the recipe, the Alton Brown pickles are also refrigerator pickles.We can compare and see if there is a difference.My brother makes pickles like these and yes they are very good.What's nice is you don't have all that canning work and it does get to be expensive with all the different things you have to have.All you need with these is a large jar and your ingredients.

I tried for years and years and never once did I make a successful batch of dill pickles .......... always ended up with jars of lumpy slime ~sigh~
I tried for years to make jelly --- always too thick or too thin.

Those difficult to make, long time effort pickles were always a great success.  I wonder about what goes on in my kitchen.

Hi Nancy I made Jelly last year,it was hot pepper jelly which turned out great and apple peel and core jelly,the first batch was great and the second didn't jell very well so I gave some to my brother he uses it on his pork roasts and ham and I use it for pancake,waffles and french toast,It's wonderful,it's apple cinnamon flavored and my guys love it.Some times all is not lost.I know I was very upset when the second batch did'nt jell and I did the same thing with that batch as the first.

I don't know if you would call this a pickle but I make marinated mushrooms.I buy a package of the plain white mushrooms and marinate them overnight in Goodseasons Italian dressing,you could use any Italian dressing of your choice.These are very tasty as a little side dish.Years ago my sister work in a deptment store downtown and they carried these mushrooms.My mom loved them but they were a little pricy so she started making her own.

I usually don't put up pickles.  But I do make "Sun Pickles".  These taste like kosher dills and will keep in the fridge for months(if they last that long lol).

You need three smaller pickles(enough to fill a regular sized pickle jar).  Cut the ends off, slice in half but not all the way through, then slice again from the opposite end(so there will be four spears).  Place them in the jar, making sure they fit all the way down.  Add a few cloves of garlic, about an inch of vinegar, fill to within half inch of top with plain water.  I also add fresh dill and a piece of white bread on top(helps them to ferment).  Usually I put them outside in the sun for two days(with the current heat wave it may not take that long).  Before putting them in the fridge, remove bread and throw it away.

I can remember my Dad making his own pickles when I was growing up.  But I didn't like them.  They were too hot (spicy) for me.

I've made this type of pickle years ago in a crock.This is an old recipe,one of my mom's.The only difference was I used bread dough instead of bread.These are very good,you are right they are just like Kosher dills.Thanks for sharing!
