I love The Little Rascals, I used to watch it all the time with my MaMaLo.
Not like that has much to do with this. I went to the grocer earlier for five items. I needed meat for jerky, coffee creamer, two different marinades and strawberries. But of course I also picked up cucumbers, dill seads, dill leaves, a big bag of sugar, eggs, butter.. so on and so forth.
After seeing numerous posts within the past week over home-made pickles, I figure I’d give them a go. I didn’t use an exact recipe, just read a couple and noted the main ingredients and ratios. Like that it’s 3parts water to 1 part vinegar. Which is exactly what I did. For ‘seasoning’ I added dill seeds & leaves, whole peppercorns & chopped fresh garlic. I really wanted to throw in some more spice, but figured I should take it easy and figure out a ‘basic’ recipe first.
So I boiled it, cut up my cucumbers and finally made use of some old mason jars I’d been collecting. The brine smelt like a pickle and tasted like a pickle, so hopefully it’ll do the same to the cucumbers. And hopefully I’ll be able to wait a few days before I bite into them. And SUPER hopefully it doesn’t take more then a few days or I may have to send the jars off to my parents house to resist the temptation
