Not so tasty!
I don’t know if it’s because I didn’t use the Bell’s pickling spices (because I forgot to buy them) and they have a nicer mix of ingredients… or if I just like a saltier pickle. So I dumped out the brine, rinsed the pickles, made up a new brine with double the salt and just peppercorns and the garlic for spices and will give them a few days soaking. I don’t know. Just not loving them.
The dill chips on the other hand are almost there. Another few days and we’ll have achieved dill chip perfection.
If you’re my neighbor and you’d like some, give a shout. I love to share!
