Mona's Quick and Easy Refrigerator Sweet Pickles

My little planters were winding down and gave me three kirby cucumbers, not enough for a big pickling project but enough to try a half batch of Mona's Easy Refrigerator Sweet Pickles. What makes these different than my Refrigerator Bread and Butter Pickles? No celery seed or peppers (although I added a small frying pepper since I had it). This is a quick recipe that will please all the sweet pickle lovers in your life:@)
My pickles have the slightest hint of pink because I only had red wine vinegar at the time.
Note: The original recipe doesn't use pickling cukes, it uses slicing cucumbers that are peeled.

Mona's Easy Refrigerator Pickles-from All Recipes
1 1/3 C sugar
2 Tblsp salt
1 C white vinegar
6 C peeled and sliced cucumbers-I didn't peel mine
2 C sliced onion
  • Stir sugar, salt and vinegar until dissolved. Add veggies, mix well. Cover and store in fridge for at least two days, stirring occasionally.
Enjoy the last of the harvest and have a happy day:@)


  1. Those are making my mouth water! YUMO!

  2. Since I can actually HOLD a cucumber with my left hand now while I slice with the right, I'm going to make my mom's refrigerator pickles today :)

  3. Lynn, My FIL had similar refrigerator pickle recipe! I'd forgotten how good and easy they were :)

  4. My mom used to make pickles like this all the time, but I've never really pickled anything...you are so good about canning and preserving things!
