Pickles.

My husband was teasing me about this photograph. So it doesn't justify the taste. But just trust me...Stop by your nearest roadside stand and pick up a bunch of pickling cucumbers. Run home and make these with your kids. They'll love them. We use a bowl, but you can use a glass jar just as easily...

Pickling cucumbers, whole

4 cups water

1 cup white vinegar

1 heaping Tbsp pickling spices

2 Tbsp pickling salt

Fresh garlic, to taste

Wash pickling cucumbers. Leave them whole until you eat them. Boil 4 cups of water with 1 cup of white vinegar, and let cool. Stand the cukes in a jar, and add fresh sliced garlic to taste. Add water/vinegar mix to jar with the pickling spices and salt. Close the lid, keep in the fridge for a couple of days, and enjoy!


Enjoy your Thursday!

Mmmmm...I can't believe it's that easy...Do these have a sweet taste when you're done? Can we add dill? Thanks!

OMG -
I have to comment on this.
My Mom used to make home made pickles. I have no idea how but the recipe was probably similar but I think she set it outside for a few hours because we used to have this really big jar that was the PERFECT size for her to make these pickles and one day she put them outside and THEY WERE GONE....
She said it was probably our neighbor. I think she was probably right.....
We never said anything to him but I will never look at him the same way again........
I WANT MY MOTHER'S PICKLE JAR BACK!
