We love visiting our local farmer’s markets and farms in the summer months. Last summer my husband and I got in the habit of making our own pickles!

We started experimenting and finally found the perfect measurements for everything. I promise, once you start making your own pickles and see how easy it is, you too will be hooked!

My favorite part of this recipe is that it is for refrigerator pickles. Meaning, there is NO canning involved.

My grandmother used to make pickles and I always loved to help her. Thanks for sharing your recipe. My mom makes these appetizers where you cut off the bread crust and then put a thick layer of cream cheese on the bread. You then roll the bread with cream cheese on it and roll it around the pickle. Then you cut the pickle with the bread and cream cheese wrapped around it into little circles. They sound terrible, but they are delicious.
