Pickle & Cucumber Question
I am growing a long english cucmber variety and hadn't intended on making pickles, but now I have so many I thought why not try. This is where my confusion has set in, first, is it okay to use this variety? Also, I wanted to make pickles chunks instead, particularly, kosher styldill chunks. I read somewhere that you shouldn't use regular cucs to make pickles and that you shouldn't cut them up or they will get mushy. Is all this true? Am I out if luck inregards to making pickles? If not, can I uses any kosher dill recipe and instead cut the pickles into chunks? Any help would be great!!
