Freezer Pickles : page 124

This makes a very sweet bread-and-butter pickle reminiscent of the kind my grandma always had on her table. Note that 2 quarts of raw cucumber slices reduce to 1 quart of pickles after chilling overnight in the brine. It remains to be seen how well these freeze and thaw out.

Updated: They did very well after thawing. Next time, I will freeze in smaller batches, though.
