Freezer Pickles

Trying to stay ahead of the cucumbers..two types of freezer pickles..very basic recipe, which I feel is the best..then, I used the same recipe but added turmeric, coriander, cumin, ginger, garlic, and chopped birds eye chilies for an Indian inspired one..tastes good and carries zing, for sure..this is after 3 days in the fridge..I've just divided them into separate containers and off to the freezer they go..

They stay fairly crispy. Sweet. You. Mix them and let them marinate for three days, then freeze in containers or zip lock bags. Good in your freezer for
Months. Quick and easy which is why I do them. I’ll post the recipe when I get home. Or you can google freezer pickles. Basically it is cukes, onions, sweet pepper, sugar, salt, celery seed.

I like ‘em. You should try it at least once. The recipe only uses 7 cups of sliced cukes.

7 cups sliced thin cukes with peel
1 large onion medium sliced
1/2 cup red sweet pepper sliced thin
1 tbsp pickling salt
1/2 tsp celery seed
1 cup white vinegar
2 cups white sugar


Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
Stir well, cover and refrigerate for 3 days. Stir every day.
Pack into freezer containers and cover with brine (I use ziplock bags to have the pickles in small portions and then place the small bags in a larger freezer container). Freeze Thaw before serving.

Sounds great. Is that much sugar important? I'm not really a fan of sweet.
