    SaintAllie's Note:

    Basic pickling recipe for gherkins.. no soaking required. We like our pickles to have a bit of kick so we add basic pickling spice to the vinegar because it already has dried chili in it.. however you can use any combination of celery seed, fennel, black pepper etc. These are not crisp pickles.. they take the flavour well, hold their green colour and you can make a small trial batch with these quantities to see if you like them or not. Because I pick the gherkins from my garden daily, I just packed the gherkins into my jars before I started so I could estimate how much vinegar would be required for the finished product. This recipe is so quick you can just pick from the garden and pickle the same day. You can eat them when cold ( keep opened jars in fridge). I found this recipe on the website and fiddled wih it

      Bring the brine to boil, add the gherkins and bring back to simmer quickly just 3 to 5 minutes.
