  1. Very nice recipe for pickles. My grandma used to do different ones. She made some salads in jars where she was adding cucumbers, peppers, onions, carrots and closing it together. She was also doing pickles in different sauces. They were very tasty especially during the winter! Last year I bought a set for cucumber pickling on ((sorry no links )) and this is when I started to pickle them on my own. It’s an amazing way to preserve food!

    • Thank you for sharing your pickling story with us! I like the idea of using carrots to the cucumber recipe.

  2. Thank you for sharing. My grandma was born in 1913 to a German mother and a English father. Her mother passed away when she was 5 years old and true only thing she ever had from her mother were old recipes written in German. She figured out how to translate them and use to make refrigerator pickles every summer tShe always insisted on using what she called”burpless” cucumbers which is a term most people didn’t use in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.. Somehow my recipe that’s when I inherited it 2004. My mom who was an only child had no idea how to make them. A lot of the recipes in my mom’s box from my grandma’s box and are also in my recipe box. That’s how we grew up. We shared with each other and did things like each other. For some reason my mom had never made refrigerator pickles I will she really like them. I had made them myself with my grandma dozens of times or more before she died when I was 30. I’ve tried to replicate them every year since 2005, I tried so many different ingredients to try to solve it and I’ve never been able to figure it out. I’ve been missing the dill all of these years! Thank you for clearing it up for me. I’m going to share with my children and pass it along to them.

    • I use to always grow the ‘burpless’ cucumbers. You can still find those seeds to grow in your home garden if you are interested. From my past experience they were really use to grow and I use to get a huge harvest around the 4th of July.

      Thank you again for sharing your story with me Heidi!
