Yeah, I'm probably going to make some today or tomorrow, have almost 4 more dozen eggs It's winter right? The girls don't seem to care. Anyway.... I made another batch of these: http://strayneedle.blogspot.com/2010/08/pickles-old-way.html I went into town a week or so ago and found pickling cucumbers at the store for a steal, not bruised, the right size, etc, I jumped on them. Bought enough to fill my 'crock' and set up the batch in the pantry. With it being so cool here and me not keeping the heat on, it took almost 2 weeks to fully ferment and taste right. I had to clean off the moldy stuff everyday from the top of the crock but..... I have 4 quarts of sandwich slices in the fridge now! I sliced them up after they were fermented, makes it easier. I'm debating on making another batch if I can find the pickling cucumbers again, I eat these pretty fast.
