“Joan Cooneys recipe for refrigerator pickles #36429 made me remember this one. Well I can't help it, I like Pickles.I also have this other bad habit of being unable to bypass the bargain bin at the market. 2 Red and 2 Green Bell Peppers and a big Cucumber only 99 cents. What would you do?? Right,, and grab another big Cucumber and a sweet Onion while I was at it. Now I got them home and what can I do with them. Relish,,, Heh.... Sweet relish for burgers and meatloaf and such. The cookwoof strikes again.”
