“I was trying to come up with a way to use up a bunch of apples we had in our fridge. Eventually I decided to just pickle them refrigerator-style. This is the result.” - by Angel_1988
Original recipe yields 2 - 1 quart jars
- Place the water, cider vinegar, sugar, allspice, clove, nutmeg, and ginger into a small saucepan, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
- Meanwhile, toss the sliced apples with the lemon juice, and pack into two sterilized 1 quart canning jars with lids and rings. Pour the boiling syrup over the apples, and affix the lids and rings.
- Allow the jars to stand at room temperature until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Place in the refrigerator, and wait 1 week before opening.

"Just as a side note, these are refrigerator pickles so just putting them in any old jar & leaving them in the refrigerator is fine. They are NOT intended to be shelf stable! Canning jars, rings & prop..." See moreer seals are not an issue! (Don't know why the web site added those in)"
"I made 4 pints of these and when I first tried them I really didn't care much for them. Not wanting to be wasteful I decided I would eat them in spite of my initial dislike. But the more I ate, the mo..." See morere I began to enjoy them. I will cut down a little on the cloves next time. But these go well in a salad with a honey yogurt dressing."
"These are really good! Instead of the spices listed, I used a homemade pie spice mix and tied it up in a cheesecloth that I put into the jar. I would slice them thicker next time. I halved the recipe,..." See more and am now wishing I hadn't but since we will be going apple picking in the the next few weeks, I'll be making a full batch of these! I'd never tried pickled apples before, but decided to on a hunch that it would be a great topping for "LaMama Raisin Burgers" along with an applesauce or fruit based steak sauce. I'm just curious how long these stay good for, as I am planning to make a large jar of these (like one of those HUGE pickle jars) so we have these on hand for snacking. I can't wait to find other ways to use these apples!"
