It was actually a little hard to find a lot of recipes online for refrigerator pickles, so I went with this one. I did make quite a few changes: I used small whole cucumbers (not sliced), I left the sugar out, I added 1 tsp celery seeds, 1 tsp mustard seeds, a few whole black peppers, a few whole all spice and whole cloves to the brine. I also added a sprig of fresh dill to each jar while stuffing the jar. I did add 2 garlic cloves to one jar even though I was kind of afraid of the "BLUE Garlic" thing happening (i think that happened because of the sugar). I ended up with 2 quarts of pickles. However, even after doubling the recipe I still didn't have enough brine. I just combined a little vinegar with water and topped it off. Well see how they turn out! Thanks!
The Result: 24 hours later I tried my first pickle and WOW it tastes great! It was a slight shock because it was quite a bit more tangy/vigegary than store bought dill pickles, but I actually love that part. I think if I had actually added the sugar it would tone down the vinegar. Maybe next time I'll just add a few tablespoons of sugar. Nevertheless, these are GREAT and SUPER crunchy! Thanks for the recipe!
