I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

Refrigerator Pickles

I first read about refrigerator pickles on this Supermom’s blog. Her adorable kids and constant stream of fun activities pull me in even though I am far from being a mom (she reminds me of my mom when we were young as we always did fun creative things). Then this stylish guy also blogged about pickles so I knew it was something I had to try. Since the pesky deer have ravaged my cucumbers I purchased some of the Main Street Market.

It was a very quick and easy process and within a few hours we had tasty pickles! I highly recommend this recipe.

Amy Rosen's Quick Pickles (via These Roving Eyes)

3 medium-sized fresh pickling cucumbers
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup water
1.5 teaspoons Kosher salt
Half a cup of white sugar
2 tablespoons of fresh chopped dill
Mustard Seed (I added this)

Slice your cucumbers length-wise into spears.
In a sauce pan, bring to a boil the vinegar, water, salt and sugar. Pour the mixture over your cucumbers and toss in that fresh dill. Allow it to cool on the counter for an hour-or-so. (The cucumbers will go from that fresh green colour to a more pickly tone.)
