Meatless Monday – Freezer Pickles?

That’s right – you freeze this recipe in order to make pickles! Weird, right? And guess what? I love these pickles! I have never canned anything. I don’t know why, but canning intimidates me. Maybe it’s because they call it canning, but they really use jars. What’s up with that? And the sterilizing of the cans/jars scares me… what if I do it wrong? Will we die of bacterial poisoning? So I shied away from canning recipes for pickles and found this freezing recipe instead – hurray! Just a warning… After I thawed mine, they looked limp, and I was expecting to be disappointed with limp pickles. But they are surprisingly… crunchy! And oh-so-tangy!

Go ahead, try it…

One thing I did that I didn’t include in the recipe, because it’s a personal preference… I peeled strips of the cucumber skin lengthwise, leaving narrow strips attached down the length of the cucumber. I just prefer less skin. The original Freezer Cucumber Pickles recipe can be found on, but the one I am posting is altered to suit my taste. Try them both and let me know which you prefer!

Well, I think I need to go eat some pickles now because this post is giving me a craving. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Do you have a favorite pickle recipe or any tips on canning? I’d love to hear your comments!

  1. Well, my son and I love pickles. And, I have been “religiously” buying BaTampte for decades. (Pun Intended!)
    We’ll try these in ten days! Let you know what we think.

    Thanks for the recipe!

    Suerae making pickles sounds fun, my son loves them so he will really think mommy is cool if I make the pickles myself, thanks!

    What a bizarre concept – I’d think they’d be mushy too. Hmm. But I love pickles as well, so I’ll have to give it a try – sounds yummy! You come up with the best things to post. :-)

      Thanks Tasha! I hope you try these and let me know if you think they are as good as I do. I am not a big dill pickle fan… more of a bread and butter person, but the way I made these, they are sort of a cross – lots of sugar, but the vinegar and some dill cut the sweetness a bit. They seem to be extra tangy. I am onto eating my second batch! Thanks for checking in! I love getting your comments. :)

    I’m all in a pickle now. It seems in my household we only ever have Pickled Gherkins at our table during Christmas. I don’t know why when the girls seem to rather like them and a jar doesn’t seem to make it through the first day. But it’s ok the wife always seems to buy the 3 jars for price of 2 xmas offers they always use.

      Haha! Sorry, Larry, didn’t mean to put you in a pickle! We are hot and cold on pickles here. My son and husband like dill pickles to put on burgers. I am a bread and butter fan, but they are really not the first thing I would go for if looking for a snack. But I really do love these homemade pickles and do snack on them! I’m guess all the sugar takes away any possible nutritional value of the cucumber, onion and peppers though. But that must be why they taste so good! Thank you for checking in! ~ Suerae

  5. Hi Suerae,

    I love pickles but have never tried Freezer Pickles. I also haven’t canned much but this looks worth a shot. I’m always down for trying new things.
