Description

The best and easiest pickles I have ever made!

Ingredients

  • 7 cubes Sliced, Unpeeled Cucumbers
  • 1 cup Sliced Onion
  • 1 cup Slice Green Peppers
  • 1 cup Cider Vinegar
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Celery Seed
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt

Preparation

Mix everything together cold and store in covered container in refrigerator. It’s best to allow it to sit for about 5 days so the flavors can mingle. These keep for months, if your family doesn’t eat them before that. Mine never last that long! Mamaw has made these since my husband was a boy, and I now make them for my family! I hope you enjoy!!!

These are delicious and soooooo easy! (note typo– that’s 7 cups of cukes). Can’t wait until next year’s garden explodes!

My Dad gave me 7 cups of cukes from his yard and I happened across your recipe! So easy. I didn’t have a green pepper, but I did have a yellow bell pepper, so we’ll see how it comes out. Thanks!

Question: How would I have to alter this recipe for canning? How long would I have to process it in a water bath?

I don’t even like bread & butter pickles but I love these. My mom has already polished off 2.5 of the 5 quarts I put up. Now I’m just waiting for my cucumbers to come in again.
