Refrigerator Sweet Pickles

This is Don's grandmother's recipe. My notes say I started making this in 2001. Kathleen just loves these and sometimes will share with the rest of us! I made a half batch this time, used just 1 large green pepper and 3 sweet onions. I used a mandolin to slice the onions and cukes.

Refrigerator Sweet Pickles

14 c. sliced cucumbers
5 green peppers, cut small
7 onions, cut up (or less)
2 T. salt
4 c. sugar
1 t. celery seed
2 c. vinegar

Mix all together and let stand 2 hours. It makes its own juice. Can be eaten the next day. This keeps for a few months in the refrigerator.


  1. how thin do u slice your cucumbers?

  2. Slice quite thin! If using a food processor or mandolin, use the thinnest blade
