Pickling Cucumbers [split from S.F. board]

jmconcierge | Sep 20, 2009 10:06 AM

Here's the recipe I have:

1/2 t. Yellow Mustard Seed
1 t. Brown Mustard Seed
1 T. Dill Seed
1/2 t. Cumin
1/2 t. Coriander Seed
9 Black Peppercorns
2 Whole Allspice Berries
3 Whole Cloves
3 Chile de Arobol
7 Garlic Cloves
2 T plus 2 t. Kosher Salt
1 T. Sugar
1-2 Bay Leaves

2 c. Water
1 c. White Vinegar
1/2 c. White Wine Vinegar

2 lbs. Cukes (I cut them into about 3/4" rounds)

I just heat everything (but the cukes) to a simmer and pour the hot mixture over the cukes into a 1.5 liter glass jar. My buddy says to wait three days and twirl the jar once or twice a day to distribute the spices. I'll let you know how they turn out!
