A week ago I went to Coombs, BC and picked up an insane amount of local pickling cucumbers from the market. A few days later Leanna and I transformed those cukes into glorious pickles during an 8 hour pickling marathon.
It was messy work, but we plowed through the majority of the cucumbers, canning them whole with fresh dill and Mexican peppers and sliced into chips with fresh dill and dill seeds. We also made bread and butter sweet pickles and some dill relish! The relish was especially fun.
3 lbs picking cucumbers, finely chopped (about 8 or 9 cucumbers)
1-2 sweet onions, finely chopped
1/4 cup pickling salt
3 cups white vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
5 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp dill seeds
2 tsp mustard seeds
2 tsp celery seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 tbsp cornstarch
It was 10pm and we still had this many left! I forced Leanna to take them home because I was very tired of looking at cukes haha.
This is the haul we got! Can’t wait to eat it all…
