If you have never tried freezer pickles you absolutely must put them on your to do list! My friend Lisa shared a family recipe with me a couple of years ago and prior to this I had never knowingly had these. These are amazing they are crunchy and sweet and everyone I serve them to loves them! My Mom makes these now too and her primary target audience is my brother Mike we both agree they are such an awesome addition to the dinner table! While we were talking about them the other day my Mom mentioned how great they are on sandwiches too. I can’t believe I had been missing out on these!
What I didn’t know is that you can find freezer pickle recipes all over the internet however I still use the one my friend shared with me I don’t think it could be improved upon. They are just a delightful addition to any meal.
Here is the recipe she shared with me although I have tweaked it a little.
4 Cups of cukes, sliced and packed
2 Cups of sliced white onion if you are a little short on onion don’t worry they will still turn out great 🙂
4tsp. plain salt
2 TBSP. water
3/4 to 1 C. sugar (I use about 3/4)
1/2 C. vinegar ( I use the white vinegar)
2 tsp. dill weed (I use dry dill weed from Ikea it is delicious and lasts forever!) – Use less if you don’t like dill but I think this really makes the recipe!
Mix cucumbers onions, salt and water in a glass bowl; let stand for 2 hours, drain, and put back in glass bowl.
Add sugar, vinegar and dill weed stir and let stand until sugar dissolves. Stir again.
Pack in pint freezer containers. (about 3 pints) Store in freezer. To eat, take out of freezer and let thaw. They have a sweet dill taste.
I have not tried another recipe isn’t that awful but you know how it is once you taste a good thing why change things? However I have listed some different freezer pickle recipes below and I think they all look really interesting. It might be fun to have a variety of freezer pickles in your freezer! 🙂
