Not your momma’s Sweet Freezer Pickles.

Sweet Freezer Pickles

These have to be the easiest pickles to make.  You don’t need special equipment or ingredients  and in the end you get a crispy, sweet pickle  that goes great with all kinds of things. Another plus is you can use any type of cucumber you can get your hands on.

You need 2 quarts of cucumbers, PEELED and thinly sliced and 1 medium onion, thinly sliced.


Sprinkle 1 tablespoon salt (table salt, canning salt or kosher salt, whatever you have on hand really).

Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit for 2 hours on the counter, not in the fridge.

Dump cucumbers and onions into a colander and let this drain.  I was surprised at how much water the salt had pulled from the cucumbers and onion.

Mix 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar well and pour over cucumbers and onions.

Pack into freezer bags or plastic freezer containers. Freeze immediately. Wait 3 or 4 days before taking them out of the freezer to try.


The secret to these crispy pickles is the sugar and they’ll keep in the freezer for up to one year

Non-typical Sweet Freezer Pickles….done!
