making pickles

We had a few bigger cucumbers from the garden, so we decided to make a small batch of pickles. I also recently acquired a crinkle cutter, and I really wanted to try it out on some pickle chips.

This was also one of those- well, the cookies are baking in the oven, so I might as well make myself useful- moments. So I probably washed my hands 800 times while switching from cutting garlic to rolling cookie dough.

I loosely followed a recipe, but I didn’t have quite the right type of spices. And since there were cookies in the oven, I just used a mixture of what we had. Peppercorns, mustard seeds, hot pepper flakes, and dill weed.

We ended up with two little jars of pickle chips. We waited a couple days, then ate one whole jar with pulled pork sandwiches. And then we did the same thing the next day. Now we are saving up our cucumbers for the next batch!
