Hi all,

We've got an overload of cucumbers this year, so I am trying some refrigerator pickles. The canner needs new seals and it's just me anyway, so no need to go crazy canning right now. I've done the basic recipe but spruced it up some with garlic and dill. Now I am looking for some new recipes to try!
