Last year I pickled and canned a ton of pickles. They were delicious. My daughter will happily eat a quart jar in a sitting if I let her.
This year I accidentally planted a cucumber plant that has been quite prolific (HOW WAS THIS NOT THE MUSK MELON I PLANTED???)
We decided to try fermenting pickles. Never done it before. The first one was a failure. Mold got in it because I over filled it. Round two just became ready and my goodness, these pickles are beyond delicious. Still firm with a wonderful tang. I don't know that I'll ever pickle pickles again.
