Today I had the time and the cucumbers to attempt another round of pickles. The first batch we made turned out good, but not awesome, so I’m told. Apparently I have a family of pickle connoisseurs.
This time around we made pickles with a different recipe. We made the Ball kosher dill pickle recipe with their seasoning packet and vinegar. Paul’s already claiming that this one will be a winner – that good pickles need vinegar. Four jars went through the boiling water bath and are now in the cupboard and one tiny jar of misfits made it into the fridge waiting for a taste test. We’ll let you know before long if we’ve found the perfect pickle recipe.
