Today I feel like such a grandma, baking cookies, canning pickles. I’m probably going to crochet later just to cherry the cake! Haha but no, it’s been fun. I’ve tried something I’ve never done before and always wanted to: Pickling!! yum!yum!
I went crazy on my Pinterest looking for a good recipe for refrigerator pickles and just ended up doing a few real simple recipes I kind of made up on my own:
- Cukes, dill, a lot of garlic
- Cukes, dill, jalapeno, garlic
- Cukes, dill, sliced ginger, garlic
As you can see, I really love my garlic.
First I scrubbed the cucumbers well and blanched them, then I stuffed the jars, ending in the cucumbers and poured a bring of 1 cup apple cider vinegar to 1 cup water with 2 tbsp salt. I prepared that 3 separate times since I like doing things the hard way for some reason 😦 but I’m very happy with my results.
I will keep these on the counter for 2-3 days to ferment then in the fridge for another couple days. I’ll probably taste test after day 2 in the fridge 🙂 I’m super excited about home made pickles!!
