Make Your Own Pickles!

We love to make these super easy refrigerator pickles. There is no canning necessary. You just chop the veggies and add the seasoning mix and brine. Let marinate in the fridge for 24 hours and it is ready to go. Couldn't be easier! It's the perfect solution for what to bring to that next outdoor picnic!

Add the package of spices and seasonings to a brine mixture of vinegar and water. The bread and butter pickles also have sugar added. The dill pickles are very virtuous with no sugar added. The Hot Pickles are "zippy" and do require some sugar. We like to make these pickles with a variety of veggies: cucumbers, of course, zucchini, onion, carrot even cauliflower.
It makes a very colorful salad, in our area we call it "chow chow", that keeps well at picnics. Once made the veggies will store in the fridge for 6 to 8 weeks but they are so yummy, they never last that long!! The seasoning packets (recipe included) are available at The Rosemary House in the shop or online!

I love homemade pickles. The chow chow sounds particularly yummy. I make a chow chow that is a relish.
