last Saturday we made a trip to midland’s farmer’s market. it was a wonderful experience filled with people, families, noise, and a tremendous selection of great food.
we purchased these fresh cucumbers and i promptly tried a new recipe for refrigerator pickles. i have already posted a recipe for pickles on this blog, which is Martha’s easy recipe. however, i tried a new recipe this weekend and love it equally.
using about 10 small size cucumber pickles, slice into spears and chunks and place in a bowl. add one sliced vidalia onion to the bowl.
next, in a glass bowl, mix 2/3 cup white distilled vinegar, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon celery seed, and 1/2 teaspoon mustard seed. microwave this mixture for 3 minutes allowing time for the sugar to melt into the liquid.
pour over the pickles and the onions in the bowl and then divide into clear glass jars. cover and place in the refrigerator for at least one day before eating. these are crisp and tasty fresh pickles. delicious.
