I’ve mentioned before that I am a city girl by birth. I grew up just outside downtown Atlanta. But… I really do believe that I am a country girl at heart. I have been trying to embrace my inner country girl with the gardening we’ve been doing. This week, we picked our first couple of cucumbers and tried our hand at making bread and butter pickles!
The cucumbers before (if you are going to pickle them, you don’t want them fully ripe… they should still have some warts):
The pickles after:
I used THIS RECIPE to make the bread and butter pickles. We did not go through the actual process of canning.. we figure that these will get eaten quickly enough. But… there are about eight or nine cukes in the garden that will be ready to pickle soon enough… so I guess we better learn how to can!
