Dill Pickles

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 recently have a little time, I had been looking on the internet a few days ago. Looking for fresh, intriguing tips, inspiring meals that I’ve never tried before, to impress my loved ones with. Looking for a while but couldn’t come across too many interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I came upon this delightful and easy dessert simply by chance. The dessert looked so scrumptious on its snapshot, it called for instant action.

It had been easy to imagine how it is made, its taste and just how much my hubby will probably enjoy it. Actually, it is quite simple to delight him in terms of puddings. Anyway, I visited the page: Suncakemom and simply used the step by step instuctions that were coupled with wonderful photos of the task. It really makes life much simpler. I could imagine that it’s a slight inconvenience to take snap shots in the middle of baking in the kitchen because you ordinarily have sticky hands so that i sincerely appreciate the effort and time she put in for making this blogpost .

That being said I’m inspired presenting my own, personal recipes in a similar way. Appreciate your the concept.

I had been fine tuning the initial mixture to make it for the taste of my family. I can say it was an incredible success. They prized the taste, the thickness and loved having a treat such as this during a hectic workweek. They quite simply requested even more, a lot more. Hence next time I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am likely to twin the amount to keep them pleased.

This dill pickles is from SunCakeMom.

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.
