I am very pleased with my harvest of cucumbers so far this year. However they are growing faster than we can eat them. So after my fist experience with canning was so successful, I decided to save some of these cucumbers for the winter months by canning them too!
I searched out a very simple recipe. Since I was looking to turn them into pickles it was a little more work to find a recipe we would love and was simple too.
Here is the recipe I used:
Soak your sliced up cucumbers in a bowl of cold water in the fridge overnight.
*Note- take out the cucumbers from the fridge, drain them, and allow them to warm up a lot before proceeding to the steps below.
Combine the following ingredients in a pot to boil.
3 cups water
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
Stuff cucumbers into cans while waiting for the solution to boil.
Pour bowling solution into the cans and seal immediately. Turn cans upside down and leave them that way overnight.
So easy and I can’t wait to see how they taste in November and December!
