My garden this year has been producing some real whopper sized cucumbers!
I came across this great pickle recipe from Real Simple :
1 large cucumber
3/4 white wine vinegar
1/2 onion, sliced
2-3 garlic cloves (it didn't say to, but I chopped them up)
2 tbs sugar
1 tsp dill seed (I used fresh dill from the garden, not seed)
1 tsp black peppercorns
Put cucumbers & onions in ball jar, mix remaining ingredients separately, then pour 3/4 hot tap water and stir. Pour mixture in jar, refridgerate for at least a day. Pickles will last up to a week. Mine were gone in 2 days!
