We ran out of pickles. We'd have two jars in there. One jar had sweet minis (or something like that) and the other were sliced Claussen (again, or something like that). I had decided that once I was out of pickles I would just make my own because I really love knowing exactly what's in our food.
I have quite a few pins about making your own pickles but opted to use this one for the time being and the information found here at its source.
I went to the grocery store and picked up some organic cucumbers.
When I came home I soaked them in a 1:4 ratio of white vinegar and water to try to get any nastiness they may have encountered off of them and also to help them last even longer if I found myself without the time to make them that same day.
After an hour of soaking in that I rubbed the cucumbers all over with my hand, dumped out the water, and then cracked a tray of ice over top of the cucumbers and added water.
Wanting to make sure the water stayed pretty frequently "iced" I came back from time to time to freshen up the ice situation in the bowl I was keeping the cucumbers in.
Then, I washed them with my Fit wash just to try to make sure they were good and clean.
Now let this all sit for at least a month, you want to make sure the brine has gotten a sufficient chance to really do its job.
I intend to spend my month eyeballing them and wondering what terrific taste might possibly lay in store for me if I just continue to be patient.
