|The makings of pickle chunks|
For a great refrigerator recipe go to our newsletter of July 5th, 2006. I make it in a gallon pickle jar, though smaller jars work too. You can use any of the pickle pack's aromatics. Simply clean the ingredients and add to the jar. Pre-boiling the cucumbers is something that I do not do anymore and the pickles are fine. You can omit that step and will find that this is a very simple recipe, and the cukes are a real treat.
If you want to make pickles the really old fashioned way, with salt brine, check out the progress of making a batch in last year's blog, bere and here. The recipe is in the MU Extension pickeling publication.
