Refrigerator Pickles

     Here they are:

     The basic recipe is cucumbers, onions, sugar, vinegar and water.  This one has pickling spice, allspice, black pepper and some rosemary lavender, too.  Mostly white vinegar, a little raw apple cider vinegar.

Mmmm, pickles. We had a bumper crop of cucumbers a couple of years ago, made bunches of pickles. (I am pretty sure I blogged about it...) People look at you weird when you show up at the potluck with pickles, until they realize they're home made.

:) Home made pickles! These are just "fridge pickle," somewhere between cucumber salad and the real thing.

Not being a pickle person (I have a visceral reaction to the taste; I have to pick them off my White Castles every time -- sure, yeah, I admit that I love White Castles), what's the difference between these and, say, "bread and butter" pickles (which my wife loves)? Or is that what these are?

They're very close -- a little hotter and lighter. The mix doesn't ferment the way real pickles do. No dill in either, as opposed to the typical hamburger dill pickle.
