Pints of Sweet Gherkins right out of the canner.
I’ve been hankering after Sweet Gherkin pickles for awhile–home-canned, not from the store! Sweet Gherkins are my favorite pickles to snack on. This year we finally achieved both a good cucumber crop AND picking them small enough–and I have my home-canned Sweet Gherkins!
It takes five days to make them (the recipe says wait overnight or 6 to 8 hours between changing out the pickling liquid, but I just waited overnight every time) and it’s worth it. Each day’s effort changing out the pickling liquid only takes a few minutes. On the final day, you just can them in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes and you have pickles! They look really pretty in the jars, too.
Up next, I’ll be canning bread and butter pickles then some sweet relish. You?
(You can find the recipe for the Sweet Gherkin Pickles here.)
