I'm about to make zucchini pickles and red onion pickles from the Zuni Cafe cookbook. They are meant to be kept in the refrigerator, and the jars are not processed in boiling water after being sealed.
Both recipes say that the pickles will keep "indefinitely" in the fridge. Is that true? Can I keep these jars of pickles in the fridge all winter long without worry, assuming they look/smell ok?
