Harvest Hero Bridget Lynn Tolbert shared her version of Amish Refrigerator Pickles and they were a big hit. So we’ve re-imagined them this week using pears, apples, onion & citrus.
- 1 Onion, diced
- 1 Apple, diced
- 1 Pear, diced
- 2 Cups Fresh Citrus Juice
- 1 1/2 Tsp Pickling Spice
- 1 Tsp Salt
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Bay leaves
- Curry leaves
- Garlic cloves
- Ginger slices
In a small saucepan combine the citrus juice, pickling spice and salt. I used the Citrus Sea Salt we made this week.
Bring that mix to a boil while you dice the onion, apple & pear. Pour the hot mixture over the pickles and stir. Load into clean glass jars. And allow to cool to room temperature. Top off w/ cider vinegar & cover. Shake the jars. Let sit at room temp for 24 hours to cure, then refrigerate.
Harvest Hack: Buy Apple Cider Vinegar that says “With the Living Mother of Vinegar” - it contains one of the oldest known probiotics.
The juice is flavor gold. Use it on salads of all sorts, vegetable, chicken, etc. It’s a crunchy salad and a dressing in a jar!
