Nice and simple way to turn your cucumbers into pickles, without the fuss of canning!
Another recipe from my blog! I'm sure it's not a very original/unique recipe, but this is how I did up my Refrigerator Pickles this year. They don't last as long as the canned ones do, but we'll can some up later for longevity, these are for enjoying this season! I did one batch with White Vinegar (5% acidity) and one with Apple Cider Vinegar.. I did NOT taste test the ACV version until later... and they came out SUPER SALTY! So, lesson learned, ALWAYS TASTE TEST! The white vinegar came out great... nice dill flavor with a hint of garlic, MUCH better than store bought!!

    Slice up your cucumbers so they are shorter than the mason jars.

    Also, for the pints, slicing them into quarters helped pack more in per jar. You can also slice them into pieces or leave them whole if using a bigger container.
