This year has been a tough year for my garden! I planted cucumbers but no such luck! Everything I’ve planted was either eaten by bugs or suffered from drought. Some years are just like that I guess! However, a friend of mine gave me a massive pickling cucumber from her garden that I didn’t wan to go to waste. I came up with this very simple single jar pickle recipe and in a few days, there were ready to eat and simply delicious!
I happened to have some fresh dill in one my herb pots that reseeded itself so I was in luck! Also, having a good pickling spice mix on hand is great for occasions like this. My uncle bought me this one from Butcher & Packer, but you can really buy it anywhere. I’ve seen a few on Amazon you can buy in bulk. The key is fresh garlic and the right ratio salt, vinegar, & water.
