The first pickles were great. This second batch… not so much.
I followed this formula from The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking blog and my results were underwhelming. Even after a couple of weeks, they were still somewhat bland and I don’t really know how it happened.
My only guess is that maybe because I used late-season kirby cucumbers that were bigger and seedier than the ones I used for the first batch, they leached water and diluted the brine (although the volume of liquid in the jar didn’t seem to increase).
Any ideas on what went wrong?
