In a Pickle
We have been reaping many pickle/cucumbers the past month, but with having a baby (and needing a couple of ingredients), I havent had time to do anything with them. Finally I decided not to really can them, but just experiment a little bit with putting them up cold. So I picked some fresh dill from my garden, cut up the cucumbers into quarters, sliced some garlic and put it all in a pint size jar. I filled the jar half way up with white vinegar (I couldn't find my Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar) and the rest with water. I added a spoonful of salt and put the jar in the refrigerator yesterday morning. Last night I decided to see how they were coming along. They were so good that I and some of my children at the whole jar full. So I cut more up, stuck them in the jar with the leftover "juice" and refrigerated them overnight. We ate that jar this morning and I made some more for tonight. YUM!
