The never-ending cucumber bounty is upon us. They seem to grow to massive sizes overnight. I try and catch them before they get too big, but sometimes I fail. When pickling cucumbers get too big, the flavor changes. It’s terrible. There’s a lot you can do with cucumbers, but with pickling cucumbers, you pickle them.
I like to pickle in all sorts of brine, but the spicy one are a new favorite of mine. We started buying the Famous Dave’s pickles and I might be addicted. Those have a lot of sugar though, so I wanted something that didn’t add any sugar to my diet.
These are light, just a little spicy and crunchy. I suggest eating them within a week to keep their crunchy texture, but they’ll keep for up to 3 months in the fridge if you don’t mind a soggy pickle.
