Refrigerator Pickles

Lauren's Refrigerator Pickles

3 medium cucumbers sliced thin
1/2 onion sliced thin
1 quart white vinegar
1/2 - 3/4 c natural sweetener
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp kosher salt
3 bay leaves
1 tsp dill weed (optional)
1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

Layer cucumber slices and onion slices with spices in a large container, I used the 80 ounce container from our claussen dills. Heat vinegar and sugar to almost boiling and sugar is dissolved. Carefully pour hot liquid over cucumbers. Refrigerate for a day before eating.

  1. Thank you!! I have been looking for a 'non processed' pickle recipe for the ninety million cucumbers that have sprouted in our garden. Very helpful!
