Nothing beats the crunch of fresh refrigerator pickles! This recipe was one handed down to me by my grandma who got it from her mom.
In her day they used iceboxes to store all food that needed to be chilled. (She still has hers and I remember just looking at it with awe when I was a kid!) Modernization of this recipe means we can store it in the fridge, but that’s about the only thing that has changed. The seasonings and flavor as just as good as they were 100 years ago!
