Happy New Year! New York had some snow, so I figured it would be a good day to make some pickles. This was the first time I’ve made dill pickles, so I figured I would experiment a bit. I jarred half of the pickles and the other half were set in the fridge.
First off, I picked up a bunch of small pickling cucumbers. I washed them, and cut off the flower end. Apparently there are enzymes in the flower ends that soften the pickles. So I chopped those off.
