Do you like Pickled Refrigerator Cucumbers?
Every since I can remember these were mainstays in our summers refrigerator.
My Dad always had a big garden, so our summer table was blessed with plenty of fresh vegetables to feast on. Once the Cukes were on we knew Mom would be making her refrigerator pickles for us all to enjoy.
As you can see this recipe has been much used in my home as well over the years.
In order to preserve it in my Mom’s original handwriting I covered it with clear plastic a couple of years ago.
It’s hard to read with the camera’s glare on it so I’ve typed it out for you here:
Cledia’s Old Fashioned Cucumber Onion Pickle
1/2 cup vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. salad oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 small sized cucumber,
1 onion, sliced
Combine and mix the first 6 ingredients in a sauce pan. Heat, stirring just until the sugar is dissolved.
Remove from the heat. Arrange cucumbers and onions in a covered refrigerator dish. Pour vinegar mix over the cucumber and onions, cover and refrigerate 4-6 hours before serving.
Hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as we do!!
