Preserving/Canning

2nd Step Of The Blind Pig & The Acorn’s Pickle Along

14 day pickles

Time for the next step in making 14 Day Pickles. After letting your cucumbers sit in the brine for a week-there will be a little mold on top of the water-you can see what mine looks like in the photo above.

You need to skim off the mold. I use a slotted spoon to scoop it out. After removing the mold-take out the jar/weight and plate. If there is any mold on them-rinse it off.

Next you need to pour out the brine-I pour mine into the sink-using a colander to catch the cucumbers. No need to wash the crock out-if you see any pieces of mold you can wipe or rinse it out. Place cucumbers back into the crock.

Bring one gallon of water to a boil and pour over cucumbers.

Place your plate and mason jar/weight back on the cucumbers to submerge them under the water. Cover and let sit overnight.

Tomorrow-we get to slice the cucumbers and add some ingredients.

    Tipper,
    I love pickles and rememember our making bread and butter pickles when I was growing up.
    Mama told me some memories of attending Ogden School during the 1930’s. You might want to visit my blog and read it: http://blueridgepoet.blogspot.com
