    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12

    Yield:

    pounds

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse the cucumbers thoroughly and snip off the blossom end stem. Set aside. Combine the salt and water in a pitcher and stir until the salt has dissolved.
    2. 2
      Place the peppercorns, pepper flakes, garlic, dill seed and fresh dill into a 1-gallon crock. Add the cucumbers to the crock on top of the aromatics.
    3. 3
      Pour the brine mixture over the cucumbers in order to completely cover. Pour the remaining water into a 1-gallon ziptop plastic bag and seal.
    4. 4
      Place the bag on top of the pickles making sure that all of them are completely submerged in the brine. Set in a cool, dry place.
    5. 5
      Check the crock after 3 days. Fermentation has begun if you see bubbles rising to the top of the crock. After this, check the crock daily and skim off any scum that forms. If scum forms on the plastic bag, rinse it off and return to the top of the crock.
    6. 6
      The fermentation is complete when the pickles taste sour and the bubbles have stopped rising; this should take approximately 6 to 7 days. Once this happens, cover the crock loosely and place in the refrigerator for 3 days, skimming daily or as needed. Store for up to 2 months in the refrigerator, skimming as needed. NOTE: If the pickles should become soft or begin to take on an off odor, this is a sign of spoilage and they should be discarded.

      I hadn't planned on reviewing this yet but my pickles were done early (about 5 days after first step)! I could not find any pickling cucumbers so I decided to use baby cucumbers. They taste really good, but got a little mushy and some kind of fell apart. I don't recommend making them MY way! :) I am giving this 5 stars though because the taste is really good and I can tell that they would be just fine with tougher cukes! Made for PRMR. Thanks! :)
