Sun-fermented dill pickles
A friend was relating a method of preparing dill pickles which gave her "the best dill pickles I've ever eaten." The only problem is she couldn't find the directions to make them and the man she originally got the recipe from is deceased. The cucumbers are put into a large glass jar with the pickling ingredients (no quantity remembered),covered with a slice of rye bread and set in the sun until they foam (ferment). Don't know how long. Has anyone out there ever heard of this method? I would really like to get some specific directions to do this.
