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 Allrecipes.com, 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!
