Quick Refrigerator Pickles are a great way to use up cucumbers from your garden into a tasty pickle!
I did not have high hopes when I planted cucumber seeds this year. My ability to grow anything is either it is destroyed by the local rabbits or it grows out of control. Imagine my surprise when I found that my cucumber plant not only survived but is producing a ton of cucumbers!
What does one do when presented with multiple cucumbers all ready at once? Make pickles!
