Lemon Cucumber Reefer Pickles

Yes I did! I made some reefer pickles out of a few lemon cukes I grew! I had some leftover pickling juice from when I made Kohl Rabi Pickles, so I heated it up and made a jar of refrigerator chips out of the lemon cukes. Hate to waste good pickle juice! Here is the regular recipe:

6-8 Lemon Cucmbers

Pickling mixture
3/4 cup white vinegar
1 1/4 cups water
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon mustard seed
1/2 teaspoon dill seed
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon salt

Slice lemon Cucumbers into thin slices; pack in a 1 quart glass jar along with garlic, bay leaf and fresh dill.
In a saucepan, combine pickling mixture.
Heat, stirring, until it boils and sugar is dissolved.
Pour boiling mixture over lemon cuke slices, filling jar completely.
Cover jar. When cool, refrigerate for 3 to 4 days before using to let flavors blend
