With the abundance of cucumbers that I have on hand right now, this is the perfect recipe! These Overnight Refrigerator Pickles don't take long to make at all. Then, you let the fridge do the work for you! Before you know it, you will have amazing dill pickles to add to any meal!
Overnight Refrigerator Pickles
We have an abundance of cucumbers in our garden this year! We are so grateful, because last year, my garden failed. 🙁 I think cucumbers literally grow overnight. I'll check one day and see a small one, not quite ready, and I swear, the next day, it's tripled in size!
When you can't keep up with those cucumbers? Make overnight refrigerator pickles! It's a great way to enjoy them, and they'll keep longer. But I do have to warn you... they are so incredibly delicious, you might be hiding your own stash--I'm just sayin'!
These are NOT canned pickles. Therefore, they are much easier and quicker to make! I have nothing against canning, as a matter of fact, I can't wait to get to that season of my life. Every year, I really want to, but life just takes over and it kind of falls to the bottom of the bucket list. So, these babies are working just fine for now!
