This week was very special for the use of my harvest. As I've said before I pickled snap peas and was sorely disappointed. I'm a real pickle lover and they make great refrigerator pickles, but once they see heat they sort of dissolve. Ick. This week I opened the first of my cucumber pickles.
They really don't look like much, but oh my goodness they were so delicious. They weren't quite as crunchy as the refrigerator version, but not bad at all. They were better than any pickle I've bought before. YUM! Sadly last year was a bad cucumber year. I only made three pints. I've got just one pickle left in the first one. I can't eat one at a time. I eat four at a time. I really hope we get some sun this year so I can grow more cucumbers.
The recipe is the same as my refrigerator pickles, but you have to salt the pickles for hours first and can them. Is the growing season here yet?
