The other day while I was smoking some pork butts for BBQ I had some time on my hands as well as about 5 lbs of cucumbers. I’ve made sweet pickles, I’ve made relish. Dill pickles would round out my pickle storage requirements. I used the recipe right out of the Ball Blue Book.
While I didn’t have as many pickles as suggested for the recipe I figured if I had a little extra pickling liquid that would be OK. It’s very inexpensive.
