Small to medium sized cukes perfect for pickling.
Love pickles but think they're too much trouble? Not ready to take on canning? These prolific cukes have the perfect thick skin and crunchy toothsomeness that makes for the perfect pickle. Grow them and then follow Margaret Roach‰۪s easy Refrigerator Pickles recipe. All that‰۪s required is water, vinegar, salt, some spice, and some fresh homegrown cucumbers harvested when they are still young. On her blog, A Way to Garden, Margaret writes, "I think of these unprocessed pickles as a seasonal treat; a real rite of the harvest season."
