Now, I'll admit, I'm a bit afraid to can food. I'm sure I'll get over it eventually, but until then, there's no reason my family can't enjoy homemade pickles. Any canning recipe can be used for a refrigerator recipe. You just can't keep it the cupboard. It needs to be eaten with 2-4 weeks and needs to be kept in the fridge at all times.
When our farm basket was filled with pickling cucumbers and dill last week, I searched the web, found this recipe from A Couple Cooks, and made a batch of pickles. They were so easy to make so delicious. I made them on Tuesday and they are already almost gone. Something tells me there will be a lot of pickles in our future.
