Pickles: what to do with the ones that got away.
Our neighbor’s cucumbers “got away from him” and he had some monster sized cukes in swollen and twisty shapes. Although easiest to pickle cukes as spears when using small 3 to 6 inch straight cukes, I accepted the challenge nonetheless. The results: seven pint jars of pickles. And yes, that is yet another full pot of spaghetti sauce on the stovetop in the background. Them tomatoes just keep on coming.
