It's that time of year. All your hard work in the garden is paying off and you have a bumper crop of cucumbers. SO MANY CUCUMBERS. Don't worry, pickle it!
There's the quick pickle—as simple as boiling water, vinegar, sugar, salt, and spices together, then covering your produce with that liquid and waiting a few hours. The difference between a quick pickle and a canned pickle is that the quick pickle process is basically the same as marinating. Canned pickles, on the other hand, use a stronger brine and a water-bath canning process to extend their shelf life.
And the process works with so many ingredients. Beyond the classic cucumbers, other fruits and vegetables that work well for pickles include asparagus, beets, bell peppers, blueberries, cauliflower, carrots, cherries, fennel, ginger, grapes, green beans, mushrooms, onions, parsnips, peaches, peppers, radishes, ramps, rhubarb, strawberries, squash, tomatoes, turnips, watermelon. The list goes on and on.
