Can i make pickles with big slicing cucumbers?
I was always afraid to can pickles at home. so when I planted cucumbers this year I just planted a regular slicing variety. now I've got cukes coming out my ears. I figure I can grind them up to make relish but can these type be used for a pickle? Has anyone had success with slicing cukes as pickles? If not what is a good kind for me to have next year? I've been reading the posts and am dying to try Linda Lou's sweet pickles. What about purchasing some from the local farmers markets? I suppose I could ask them to put aside fresh picked ones for me, if they do such a thing. How many should I start out with? what would the yield be?
