Mrs. Shelby (Mary) Hancock's No Cook Sweet Pickles

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ErneChef

My grandmother was a wonderful cook and she made these pickles every year from cukes that she grew herself. She was a gentle woman who loved fishing and gardening. I miss her very much

I'm giving these 5 stars because the recipe was easy to follow; it was simple; and the results delicious! I've even added fresh cukes to the "old" juice and the second batch was tasty. I'm not sure how far I can stretch that frugal trick but it worked once! Thanks Grandma Hancock and ErneChef!
