Round Robin

I'm taking a short break from playing in PSE with Jessica Sprague to post an awesome refrigerator pickle recipe I've been using. This is for the Round Robin over at Keeping up with the Schultz Family. Thanks for hosting this, Amy!

Easy Refrigerator Pickles
Lightly pickled cucumbers. A great snack that involves no cooking and only 2 days in the fridge to season. The flavor variations are endless.
All you need is:

Cucumber spears. This amount of liquid is good for about 2-3 cukes.

2 cups cold water.

1/3 cup white wine vinegar - you can change this to suit your taste.

1 tablespoon salt. Table salt or sea salt.

2 teaspoons sugar.

5 whole peppercorns - fresh.

fresh ground pepper (from a grinder is best).

1-2 cloves garlic.

optional flavor additions: fresh dill, jalapeno pepper, onion, habanero pepper, etc.

and a container to put them in. I use Tupperware modular mates. They're big enough to hold an entire batch.

1. Slice cukes in half crosswise. Then cut each half into 8 spears.

2.Peel and cut up garlic.

3.In a bowl, mix the water, salt, vinegar, ground pepper, and whole peppercorns.

4. Put the cukes in whatever you're going to store them in. Add the liquid, garlic, and any other additions you might want.

5. This is the hard part. Put them in the refrigerator for at least two days. The longer you leave them, the more flavorful they become.

So yummy! Enjoy!

Perfect post for me. I've got some cucumbers in our garden and are just about ready to be picked and pickled!

Stopping by from Amy's Round Robin Party to say hello. Hope you have a great weekend. I hope you don't mind if I follow. I'm going to be looking for this recipe in the next few days!
