  • Here is another tip I got at our garden club meeting last week. I tried it, liked it and survived it so I thought I would share. I think it came from Barbara, but I know she said it came from an acquaintance of hers, so.. I don't know who gets the credit.

    If you have a particular good batch of pickles, consider using the same liquid to out more cucumbers in. Barbara mentioned heating the liquid and that may be to kill any bacteria.

    I just plopped a washed, sliced cucumber into a store bought bottle of juice when we finished it, put it back in the refrigerator and within a few days, we had delicious pickles again.

    I have almost used up the bottle but because of the possibility of bacteria, once is enough. No need to push my luck.

    Anyone else try this? Good or bad results?
