Pickles!

Posted on Posted in England

Success! Tasted the first of my homemade batch of pickles made from the colossal batch of gherkins that Jon’s mom gave to me. The recipe was so simple too!

2 quarts water

1 1/2 cups white vinegar

6 crushed garlic cloves

Bunch of fresh dill

2 heaping tablespoons of salt

Leave sit for at least 48 hours in an airtight container. That’s it. So simple.

I just ate three (testing the merchandise!) and I think/hope they’ll taste even better tomorrow. I think the next batch I make will use more garlic and vinegar-I like my pickles to have a strong taste. Just glad this first attempt went so well!
