Looking for a Freezer Friendly Recipe, try this one out..

 First thing though you will need to purchase, Gooseberry Patch's "Freezer Friendly Recipes" Cookbook.

After that you will need to turn to page 55 to the recipe for "Old Time Freezer Pickles".

I tried this recipe out over the weekend, while my mom was here to go to the 43rd Annual Fin and Feather Fall Festival , over in Gore,OK. I sent her home with some to try on the co-workers.

This recipe may take two days to complete, but it is well worth it.

I used the cucumbers, I purchased from the Oklahoma Food Cooperative, which was just enough.

I only had to purchase the 2 onions it called for, and the Ball Pint Freezer Containers I needed to put the end result in.

Below you will find a couple of pics of the end result. The flavor is just right. The recipe gets an A+ from me for ease of preparation, and flavor.

You can stop by to see more titles available for purchase  by Gooseberry Patch.
