Refigerator cucumber relish

My 2 jars of refrigerator cucumber relish.
Before I say anything at all, you'll need to go to Creative K Kids for this recipe. When I saw it at her blog - a grandmother's recipe no less - and with all my extra cucumbers, I knew I had to try it.

I asked her if she thought it would work for the frig instead of canning and she said once she opened a jar it lasted a long while since it has vinegar in it.

It turned out fantastic and the 2 jars are almost gone already! It is a nice, refreshing addition to any dinner and is glorious on biscuits.

I did the process just exactly the same way, only after cooking on the stove, I put it in clean jars, let it cool and popped it in the frig. 

I halved the recipe since I wasn't canning (As much as hubby liked it I could have made the full batch. He said it reminds him of his grandma who passed away a few years back. Awww.) and because of our personal tastes I left out the curry, hot pepper and mustard seed. I have no doubt those would taste awesome in it, but hubby isn't thrilled about those particular additions :) You know how it goes.

Anyway, Creative K Kids has some of the best recipes, so go on over and check it out. I am also getting ready to make her caramel corn and caramel dip.

    1. Well, it's not technically canning. I guess I call it refrigerator cooking. I've also done tomato pickles, pickled okra and homemade hot sauce. Jelly is next on my list :)

    1. We eat it plain in a little dish on the side, or I did put some on a biscuit and it was great because it does have a sweetness to it. Gosh it'd probably go good on a hotdog too!

    1. Thanks, Jen! I love to share other bloggers' ideas, especially if I have tried them myself, but I always, ALWAYS want to make sure everyone knows where I got it from and how I might have changed it.
