These quick and easy pickles are a perfect way to use some of your cucumber bounty. They have plenty of zing and will be gobbled up in a second!

     These quick pickles have it all.  A little bit of spices mixes with that tart pickle tang.  They are a great way to use your extra cucumbers when the harvest is overwhelming.  You don’t have to know how to can to make them, they store well in the refrigerator and they disappear quickly.  My brother can polish off a quart in just a few days all by himself!

     This is another refrigerator pickle recipe from my cousin Cori.  She got this recipe from her father-in-law.

   He has been making it for years.  Cori says the pickle are too spicy for her, but when she takes them places people devour them.

      These pickles turned out amazing.  The spice level obviously depends on the red pepper flakes you use and how much you use.

   My dad makes his own pepper flakes from a variety of hot peppers that would result in pickles that would make steam come out of your ears.

     The pepper flakes I used have a more average heat level and produced a delicious pickle.  I would definitely recommend making these with any extra cucumbers you have!

     This made two very full quart sized jars for me.  I kept one at home and took one to share with everyone at my parents.  Pops like them so much he confiscated what was left!

    My brother Clint is also a big fan.  I sent a jar home for him the last time I made them. He gets a bowlful to snack on after work each day!

I love canning, but I don't eat pickles! My hubby does though, so I don't make a lot of them! These look worth surprising him with! So glad you shared them with our Celebrate 365 Farmers Market Recipe Inspirations

I am the only pickle eater in my house, but luckily my dad and brother helped me gobble these up!

Hi Carlee, I've got to the stage that I don't know what to do with the cucumbers, so I'll have to give this a go. Once pickld how long will they last in the fridge?

They should last at least a couple of weeks in the fridge.

In the picture it looks like yellow seeds have been used. Can you tell me what they are? I am anxious to try these. Thanks

I used my dad's homemade red pepper flakes, so I think they are hot pepper seeds. I hope you love them!
