Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Quickles Update


Quickles Update

How are they? Great! We all enjoy them, especially the kids who are pickle maniacs. They definitely don't taste like store pickles but we don't mind. I wanted to address a couple questions I got about them.

Did I use pickling cucumbers? Yes and no. I had 1 pickling cucumber on hand so I used that. The other 2 were plain old cucumbers. In the future I will try to find and use picklers because it's a firmer pickle.

How long will they keep? Hmmmm I really don't know the answer to that one. I suppose at least a week? Maybe 2. I mean they are in vinegar, salt and sugar the 3 biggies for preserving foods. But then on the other hand you have not started with boiled jars (I did but I'm a freak) and they were not given any sort of sealing in the end. So officially 1 or 2 weeks.

I hope you try them. For being so quick and easy they really do make great pickle.
