Cold pack pickle recipe???

Hi!
I want to make some pickles with all these cucumbers in the garden...I did not have good luck with them last year, and I have heard it is nearly impossible to get them crisp. Then I just heard about cold pack pickles, that you keep in the fridge (as opposed to canning). The only recipe I can find involves a gallon jar, which I do not have.
Does anyone know how to make these? I trust you all to lead me!!!
Thanks!

Sandy’s Microwave Bread and Butter Pickles

1 large unpeeled cucumber sliced in ¼” thick rounds (2 cups)
1 medium onion, sliced and separated
1 cup sugar (I use about 2/3 cup)
½ cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon mustard seed
¼ teaspoon celery seed
¼ teaspoon turmeric

Mix all ingredients and put into a 2 quart microwave safe bowl. Cook on high about 10 minutes. Stir twice during cooking time.

Makes about 2 ½ cups.

Note: this does stain.

Watch out! The family and friends will start requesting them. I added the tidbit about it staining because a friend dropped his jar on the floor and broke it. It stained his vinyl.

My husband makes great refrigerator pickles. Friends and family are already starting to show up at our house with empty jars and containers of all sorts.


Quick Pickles

1 Cup distilled white vinegar
3 Cups water
1/4 Cup sugar
1/4 Cup kosher salt
2 cloves garlic
2 pieces fresh dill
1 Tablespoon pickling spice

To make brine, place vinegar, water, salt and sugar into a saucepan. Bring to a boil and let steep for 10 minutes.

Cut cucumbers. Cut garlic in half.

Wash container and start adding cucumbers, garlic, dill and pickling spice. Add brine to cover cucumbers.

Cover tightly and refrigerate. Pickles will be ready in 24 hours.

I asked him that when I was typing and in typical male fashion he smiled and said that would depend on the size of both the container and the cucumbers.

Men!

I just wanted to *bump* this thread.

I had a bunch of cukes in my garden and was looking for something to do with them and searched the DIS and found this thread. I am now on my 2nd batch of candykisses's husband's pickles. I picked out my container and cut up cukes until I filled it, then I removed the cukes to another bowl. I returned the cukes to the container, layering the cukes, fresh dill and pickling spices until I got to the top. I then added the brine to the top ... they were good to eat the next day and got picklier a couple days after that. They were gone too soon to see what would happen in a week, LOL!

I'm also going to try jiminyC_fan's pickles when I get a chance. My DD likes a sweeter pickle while I like a saltier dill pickle.
