Refrigerator Pickles

Thanks everyone for your sweet comments on my last few posts. I love reading your thoughts :)

I've been working away on the pencil skirt pattern from the last post, and am nearly ready to photograph. I'm pretty happy with the way it's turning out, though I may consider going one size smaller next time. Can"t wait to share with you!

Over the weekend I made some refrigerator pickles to preserve a boatload of cucumbers that were given to me. I used my grandmother's recipe for these, and it was quite easy to make. Vinegar, sugar, celery seed, and onions. Simple simple.

I cut my cucumbers into 1/4" slices (or roughly around there) and that seemed to work quite well. Make sure to pack these tightly. Oh, and it'll work a lot better if your cucumbers are smaller in diameter. Mine were a bit oversized and it made it harder to pack them in
