    You can't see it in the pict - but when I processed the yellow cukes (boothby's blonde I think) their skin turned RED! I got a bunch more of them yesterday and I'm going to try a batch of JUST them this comming weekend.
    Can I use white vinegar??? Will it mess up the taste?? I'd like to try and preserve the red skin on them - they darkened up some in the ACV.

    :weee I was so tickled! Just wish I had someone to brag too (in person, I mean).
    YES!!! They are sooo good. I haven't tried them cold yet but I'm thinking that sandwiches will be dinner just so I have a good reason to eat pickles :lol:

    As yummy as that sounds... I prefer the Dill. In fact, I got a ton of dill ready to go, but I'm lucky to get 2-3 pickling cukes every other day. All this soaking rain, a lot of the plants I have going have reduced production, less flowers, and less pollinators out in all this rain. :/

    :yuckyuck

    Yes you can use white vinegar. I just always use the ACV because I like the flavor and I use the juice after we eat all the pickles in the jar. Chop up some and make deviled eggs! YUMMY! Add a little juice to the yolks too. I am so glad you like this recipe!

    :gig :gig :lol: :lol: That's the funniest thing I've heard in 13 years!!!!!!!!! You always say I'm going to do more golfing and yet your poor clubs are in the BARN collecting MORE dust every year


    :love :love But when the cukes are ready I will help you.... sad to say I wont be helping with the beets. :hit Might as well make sweet pickles and what ever other kind of pickles we want because Elizabeth cant eat that many by herself.
