These refrigerator pickles are easy and versatile. The recipe calls for cauliflower and carrots but you can use any equivalent amount of cucumbers, broccoli, peppers, brussels sprouts, baby squash or baby zucchini. These will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator. This recipe comes from the Chicago Tribune Good Eating section. Prep time does not include standing and chilling time.
This recipe came from my former MIL who just turned 90 years old. She can run circles around me. She made this recipe for me about 30 years ago. I turned my nose up at them until she made me try one, then I was hooked.
When canning any vegetable it is highly recommended that you hot water bath them. Pickles should be boiled in the jars for ten full minutes. If you add more water to the pot, wait until boil starts again to resume timing.
This is an old timey ginger pickle..canning recipe. I wont say its the easiest in the world, but it makes very good pickles. I think the powdered lime is available most everywhere....Im sure the alum is. Hope ya'll like these....:-)
A delicious and unusual way to use up any extra figs you may have. From the US Regional Cookbook, Chicago Culinary Arts Institute, 1947.

This is a very old recipe given to me by one of the finest cooks in our church. It is a very sweet pickle, and takes a long time... about 3 weeks. It is also highly prized and a favorite of all my sweet pickle loving relatives and friends. I make sure I have at least 3 jars, when I get low, I know it is time to make more. This and the curry pickle are a staple in my pantry. The amounts for Nutrition Facts will be hard to figure. I grow cucumbers, and I use a 2 gallon crock in this particular adventure, so let's assume it is 6 pounds of cucumber. The amounts are approximate... how much is one serving of a jar of pickles, anyway! This recipe taught me to understand pickles. It would be considered a long brine pickle. Good luck, if you make it! It is well worth it. As I am writing the instructions, I wonder if anyone will try to make these wonderful pickles. (They do go for about $10 a jar at our church's annual "Lord's Acre Day" auction)
