HaWOW! Remember all those cucumbers I’ve been amassing over the past few weeks? They finally graduated to PICKLE status this weekend. We made six small jars and two big jars of briny pickles.
The recipe we used from my cousin is pretty simple:
1 qt vinegar
3 qts water
1 C salt
Donâ€™t scrub pickles. Wash and let soak overnight in clean cold water. Put
cucumbers in jars (donâ€™t pack tight). Bring solution to full rolling boil and pour
over cucumbers (for 1/2 gallon jar, use about 4 cloves of garlic and 1 large
stalk of dill). Let jars stand a little before sealing.
We’ll see how they turn out in six weeks. The brine made enough for eight small jars and two large jars so we had a little extra.
There’s a website out there that is dedicated to picture-based recipes. Instead of a boring ol’ list, you draw out the ingredients/steps and voila! There’s your recipe! Check out Recipe Look if you want more mixy mixy and choppy choppy…
I just put up a new recipe over on the cooking blog! Today it’s Dutch Baby Pancake… check it out, or be square (and minus a good breakfast recipe).
