I still have cucumbers coming in, but at a little slower rate, so I saved some over the course of a  few days until I got enough to make some refrigerator B&B pickles based on Rooster's suggestion in another thread.  This quart was made 2 days ago and we had some with our lunch today.

They were OUTSTANDING and should last us up to a month in the fridge.

These do not need to be preserved ?
I should try this, my cuke tree is climbing like the beanstalk jack climbed.
Never have I had such huge cucumber plants, hope it's due to the newly made SFG with Mel's Mix.
Now all I need to do is win the battle with cuke beetles, I may have with using Neem oil

Can you provide a recipe for these pickles? they look soooo delicious... I can just about taste them

Hi Jimmy,

This was a recipe my wife's friend in Kansas sent us to try. Very easy and no canning required.

In a Dutch oven, combine 6 cups sugar, 6 cups white vinegar, 1/4 cup each mustard seed and celery seed, and 2 Tbsp. canning salt; bring to a boil. Pour over cut vegetables: 10 halved and quartered carrots, 3 sliced cucumbers, 3 cup-up sweet red peppers (1" pieces), 2 sliced onions and 8 cut-up green onions (2" pieces). Cover & refrigerate 48 hours before serving. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. Yield: 7 pints.

OK, I cut everything in half. Made the 1/2 recipe of pickled solution then just added the veggies I wanted...carrots, cucumbers, celery, red peppers, etc. When the veggies got low, I just added more to the solution. Also used Kosher salt for the canning salt.

I adjusted it to my needs and tastes and it really came out well.

I too have had spectacular results with my SFG and Mel's mix for my first year and expect even better next year with my homemade compost.

Thanks Bnoles
I cant wait to try them, worked with a fellow for years, his (Italian) Mom made sweet sliced pickles that were to die for.
He gave many bottles away, however, he would never produce a recipe.
Such a shame, if I had something so delicious, I would want as many people to enjoy it..that could.
I went out today and wife picked a bunch and gave em to neighbors....cukes..
There goes my case...  many will enjoy them

Okay, now you got me wanting to can some pickles asap.  Those look delicious!  I only have 2 cukes so far though, haha.
