Yay! My friend delivered 18 pounds of cucumbers to me today. Now I can make my sweet pickles. Jim was getting a little worried. We opened the last jar several weeks ago.
That is a big rock, in a ziplock bag, on top of a bowl to keep them submerged. Fourteen days of soaking them in salt water then I'll spend a few days with alum, vinegar, and finally sugar.....THE BEST EVER SWEET PICKLE RECIPE.
