So my weird neighbor Sue was insisting that we take all the cucumbers that are on our side of the fence where she planted them.  So we ended up with this:



So, after giggling at the size and shape of it, I decided that the best thing to do with your neighbor's cucumbers is to experiment with pickle recipes.  First up, bread and butters.  



Now, they're not full blown canned and boiled or whatever.  They're just refrigerator pickles because I'm lazy and they still taste great.  There's at least 4 or 5 more that are growing on our side that should be ready all at the same time so I should be able to do a few different dills.  

and hey... if Dave's cross stitching gets a thread my lame pickles do too.

I do love me some pickles though, especially if they're pickled with jalapeņos.

My sister's old neighbor used to pickle cucumbers and carrots together, either b&b or some type of slightly hot kind. Both were awesome, and the carrots were surprisingly good pickled.

Ted's Montana Grills has some delicious refrigerator style cucumbers, they are fantastic.

When we have our abundance of them I want to throw some together.

I want to pickle some jalapeņos. I think store bought would be cheaper though, so I don't.

Haha! Yeah, most of my summer has been filled with pickling and canning.

On a more serious and helpful note, check out Sausage Maker online.

Everything you could ever need for pickling!

Right now we're happy with refrigerator pickles.  Next year we may step it up and actually can some stuff.  This first batch came out great and I used a super simple recipe.

Canning them is EASY. Pickles can be hot-water-bath canned. Just need a pot big enough that you can fit your jars in and have 1-2" of water over the tops of the lids. Slice cukes, add boiling pickling solution, apply lids and bands, drop in boiling water and boil for 15 minutes. Remove, allow to cool, voila!

You don't need any special equipment until you start getting into pressure canning (for non acidic foods) Then you get into the x-pounds-of-pressure for x-minutes per x-sized jar.
