Cukes, Cukes, and more Cukes
I've come into an abundance of cucumbers (not pickling cucumbers). I was wondering if it was ok to pickle regular sliced cucumbers? All the recipes that I've come across call for pickling cucumbers and I understand that you don't want air pockets in any vegetables that you are pickling because of bacteria growth. However, if I'm slicing these cucumbers, the risk of air pockets should be greatly reduced.
As always thanks for your thoughts,
