Love growing cucumbers
but I have difficulty finding recipes.
Odd, but true.
A recipe I used to make all the time
calls for fresh dill, which I grow in abundance.
But by the time my cucumbers are ready for harvest
my dill is going to seed.
Recently I learned I should plant dill seed at the same time
I plant the cucumber seeds
rather than expecting to use your self seeded dill.
Good to know for next year but what to do this year?
I’ve begun making refrigerator pickles
and above is a Persian Tarragon Pickles
that I have to let cure for 4 weeks
and the other (center) is an Indonesian Quick Pickle
that you can dip into within hours.
Both are perfect for having just one or two pickles available
which is ideal for me.
Waiting to try the Persian Pickles but
the Indonesian Quick Pickle is a hit with my family.
Super fresh tasting and practically begs
to be put on a Chicago Hot Dog.
I’ve made 3 jars in the last week
and intend to make more this week.
It’s so much fun finding new recipes
and these are from Canning for a New Generation by Liana Krissoff.
I have several more pickles recipes flagged
to try from this book.
