Cori's Gone in a Second Pickles


     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!

Cori's Gone in a Second Pickles

Ingredients:

3 lbs. cucmbers (about 6 medium cucumbers)
10 T salt
4 cups boiling water
1 tsp Accent * (optional, I skipped it and still loved the results)
6-8 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 cup vinegar
3 cups ice water
3 tsp dried red pepper flakes

  1. Cut your cucumbers in half lengthwise, then slice them in half inch slices.  
  2. In a large sauce pan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil.  Add salt and stir until dissolved. 
  3. Remove pan from heat and drop in cucumber slices.  Let sit for 1 hour. 
  4. Drain cucumbers.  Mix drained cucumbers with remaining ingredients.
  5. Pour into jars and refrigerate at least overnight.

  2. These look good! I'm more of a good old fashioned dill and garlic pickle sort of a girl, but my husband loves anything spicy, so maybe he would like these!
