I don't know if you want refrigerator pickle recipes or canning recipes but here are a couple tried & true ones that I make:

Refrigerator Bread and Butter Pickles

3 c. vinegar

4 c. sugar

1/4 c. canning salt

1 tsp. turmeric

1 tsp. celery salt

1 tsp. mustard seed

1 tsp. pickling spice

1 tsp. alum



Fill a gallon jar ¾ full of the onions and cucumbers.

Bring rest of ingredients for syrup to a boil and pour over veggies.

Let cool and refrigerate. Keep in refrigerator; they will keep a long time.


Lime Sweet Pickles

7 lb (2 gallons) cucumbers, sliced 1/4" thick

2 cups hydrated lime

2 gallons cold water


5 lbs sugar

3 pints vinegar

1/2 cup water

1 tsp celery seed

1 T. salt

1 T. mixed pickling spices

Mix pickle ingredients together.

Soak for 24 hours.

Wash in clean water.

Let set 4 hours in clean water.

Mix ingredients for syrup.

Bring to a boil and pour over pickles.

Let stand over night.

Next day, bring all to a boil and simmer 30 - 35 minutes.

Add green food coloring and put in jars and seal.


These are so easy and are really good!

Making Sweet Pickles From a Jar of Dills

Drain 1 gallon of whole dill pickles; slice fairly thick.

Put in large bowl and pour 8 cups sugar over pickle slices.

Cover and let set overnight (will make juice).

Stir several times.

Pour slices and juice back in jar. Refrigerate.
