This is an old recipe that my family used during the summer. It is so easy and when you want a pickle, you just reach in a grab one! We use small pickling cukes, about 3 to 4 inches long. Just wash the fresh cukes as you pick them, dry them and add them to the crock.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1You will need a one gallon crock or glass container, with a top.
- 2Mix salt, sugar, red pepper flakes and mustard and add to crock.
- 3Add a little vinegar at a time until well combined, then add remaining vinegar and garlic cloves.
- 4As cukes come in, wash, dry thoroughly and put in crock, cover with grape leaves and dill on top.
- 5I also add a small piece of alum.
- 6I start eating them 3-5 days after they are in the crock.
- 7As you add the new cukes, you can tell which ones are ready, by their color.
