Alright here it is, my second attempt at making pickles. The first was a disaster and I won't be the only one to tell you that. The first also involved a whole bunch of farm fresh cukes. I would say a bushel, or maybe half of one. Anyway. I tried the "recipe on the box" for the first time, and guess what, they sucked, they were mushy and gross, so I am trying a new recipe. This recipe is for naturally fermented pickles, so I don't have to cook them. I am also not sure what is going on in this natural state! I didn't exactly follow the recipe since I did not have any dill weed, I used dill seed, so we shall see. I will post again in a few days to see how they turned out. I love taking something and making it into something new! I like cukes, but I LOVE Pickles, so if I can make it right then rock on, it didn't seem as daunting as the other process where you pour the vinegar and the boiling water and blah blah blah. Check in later to see how they have come out.
