Refrigerator Dill Pickles

Are you overrun with cucumbers in your garden? Not sure how to use all of them before they go bad? I have a recipe for you.

Well I have a black thumb and have nothing growing in my garden, but I did get an amazing coupon deal on cucumbers and got as many cucumbers as I wanted for free!! But I wasn’t sure what I could do with tons of cucumbers. How do you preserve cucumbers?

Well you can’t freeze them, but you can turn them into pickles by canning them. Though I have nothing to use for canning and I am not sure if I could do it. So I started researching and I found that you can still make pickles without canning them. You can make Refrigerator Dill Pickles.

I didn’t have jar lids, so I used a rectangular plastic container. Actually this worked even better as I could stack the container on my shelves and saves on space used in my fridge.
