Making pickles is as easy as taking them from the shop’s shelf. It only needs a jar, water, salt and some spices to let our dill pickles recipe shine!
As I lately have some time, I had been surfing on the internet a few days ago. In search of fresh, interesting ideas, inspirational recipes that I’ve never tested before, to surprise my loved ones with. Searching for a long time yet could not discover any interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this delightful and simple dessert simply by chance. The dessert looked so delicious on its photos, that called for fast actions.
It was simple enough to imagine how it’s made, how it tastes and how much boyfriend will enjoy it. Actually, it is rather simple to keep happy him in terms of cakes. Yes, I’m a lucky one. Or maybe he is.Anyways, I got into the page: Suncakemom and then followed the comprehensive instuctions that had been coupled with great photos of the task. It really makes life much easier. I can imagine that it is a slight inconvenience to take photos down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you ordinarily have sticky hands so that i sincerely appreciate the time and energy she devote to build this post and recipe conveniently implemented.
Having said that I’m empowered presenting my personal formulas similarly. Many thanks for the thought.
I was tweaking the initial formula create it for the taste of my loved ones. I’ve got to tell you it absolutely was an incredible outcome. They prized the taste, the consistency and enjoyed having a treat such as this during a busy workweek. They quite simply wanted more, a lot more. Thus next time I am not going to make the same mistake. I’m likely to multiply the quantity to make them pleased.

Brine should be made by heating up the water and dissolving the salt then cooling everything down but in our case this won’t be necessary. Just keep track of the amount of water is used filling up the jar and add the amount of salt required for pickling. Mind that, too much salt will create an overly salty pickle and a too small amount of salt won’t preserve the texture of the cucumbers letting them turning soft and soggy.
Wash the cucumbers thoroughly. Don’t overdo it, in cold water with a bit of scrubbing will be plenty.
If the cucumbers are big, we can chop off the tops and bottoms then pierce them through and cut them alongside essentially creating 4 slices of the one big one. It’s not necessary to cut them through to the top and bottom.
Fill our container with the cucumbers as tightly as possible.
Add garlic, black pepper, dill and the optional herbs and spices. Salt can be added now as well if we know about the rough amount of water needed for filling up the jar.
Fill the container up with water and add the necessary amount of salt that shouldn’t be less than 1 tablespoon per 4 cup (1of water.
Place something on top of the container that will keep the cucumbers down. This can be a small plate, clean stone, piece of wood or more organic materials like sliced potato, vine leaves or slices of bread among others.
Cover the whole thing with a plate or in case we use a pickling earthenware jar put the lid on and let it sit on room temperature for at least 2 days.
After two days check for firmness and flavor. If it is soggy and soft consider it a failed attempt and use more salt next time.
