Thought that might get your attention. So, I decided to finally wash some yeast and while I was at the Wally-world, trying to decide what to do with those extra jars, I had a wonderful idea... behold:



That's 1056 on the left, Pacman in the middle (who says it's available only from time to time) and of course - pickles!

I can't wait to pickle our okra this summer. You can eat fried okra every day for only so long!

I put:

7 peppercorns
7 fennel seeds
1/4 t celery flakes
1/4 t minced garlic
1/2 t dried dill weed

in each 8 oz. jar along with 1/3 of a "hothouse cucumber" in each jar. I soaked the sliced cucumbers in ice water for 15 min prior to "canning".

The brine is:

3 C water
1 C vinegar
2 T kosher salt
1/4 t table sugar

I boiled the brine for 10 min and then immediately dumped into the jars and capped them. Tried some tonight actually - 72 hours later. Pretty good. Next time I'll drop the vinegar back to 3/4 C and bump the dried dill to 3/4 t. Other than that, I can't wait to try them on some burgers tomorrow night.

EDIT: The jar by itself, I left the celery flakes out and substituted the same amount with crushed red pepper flakes

Looks delicious! Love me some good home pickling. Have you ever attempted fermenting pickles?

No, although I was reading about it the other day. This was actually my first forray into pickling. I'm glad to report solid results.
