There are lots of kirby cucumbers at the markets now, and so, pickles. I hadn't made a batch in about a year. I'm not as happy with this batch, I guess because I deviated from the regular recipe by forgetting to include a few things (dill and garlic). Next time will be better. I did pickle some carrots too, and those I quite like. They held a lot of their crunch and carrot taste, but took on a lot of the pickling flavor. I think the next time I go to the red barn it will be with an eye for things to pickle. That sounds kind of suspect, doesn't it?
It appears I'm not the only food blogger who's pickling this week. Through them, I found this. Friggin' internet.
