We have excess garlic and another gardener a cucumber glut. What do you do? You swap! We only have 2 cucumber plants left in the ground - the slaters killed several plantings of cucumbers throughout the season. So, what better way to get our cucumber fix and have some for pickling?
They are big, juicy, tasty cucumbers. So the bulk of them went into big jars to be pickled. I followed the instructions on this page.
They look fantastic in these jars! We shall try the first one in a week or so. Then they'll be stored in the pantry or some other dark, out-of-sight place.
