my nana’s refrigerator pickles

I used these pickles in last night’s summer burger, so I thought I’d post the recipe (sorry, no lemons here today). My Nana used to make these every summer, and they were always one of my favorites. In fact, when I was younger, they were the only pickles I liked, other than Japanese pickles. A fond memory of my Nana was when I was trying to force myself to like dill pickles. She told me that pickles weren’t good for you anyway, so if I didn’t like them, I didn’t have to eat them. 🙂

nana’s refrigerator pickles

1 cup vinegar
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. celery seed

Mix together thoroughly. Do not heat.

Add:
6 cups sliced unpeeled cucumbers
1 cup thinly sliced onions

Refrigerate and enjoy! They’re good to eat in a few hours, but they’re even better days and weeks later.
