Anyone do any home canning or pickle making? Post up your recipes if you have personally used them and the outcome. I've got cucumbers and need to do something with them besides provide free chicken food.

You can make a mild pickle to keep in the fridge just by skinning, and slicing the cukes, and add vinegar, water and salt.. I also make a sweet pickle just by adding sugar... Keep in a covered tupperware container in the fridge..

For canning and storing , I don't know.

3C white vinegar
3C water
1/2C salt
12 sliced garlic cloves

Heat the above to boiling, then remove garlic (like all onion family, very susceptible to bacterial activity). Pack about 4lbs of washed, sliced cukes into hot, sterile jars. Add about 2TBS dill seeds, sprinkle with dill weed, add desired number of peppercorns, and fill the jars with the above hot liquid within 1/2 inch of top. Immediately adjust and seal lids, and process in water bath for 10 minutes.

This is "short brine" and doesn't keep as long as "long brine." Good luck!

See if you can find a local store that sells Mrs Wages products from precision foods. They make a complete line of ready to use pickling spices for any kind of pickle you might want to make.
