Make Blue-Ribbon-Winning Pickles (with Homemade Condiment Recipes)

These pickles have won a blue ribbon each time I entered them in the State Fair. They’re quite sweet with a spicy tang. We use them mostly on sandwiches and burgers.

Before you dive in, re-read my post on pickling hints for tips on choosing vinegars, spices, and more.

Choose cucumbers that are pretty even in size, preferably pickling cukes. They are best at about 1- inch diameter and 4 to 5 inches long (about the size of an Italian sausage). Don’t try to make pickles with the common salad cukes one sees in the grocery store — they are waxed and I don’t think you can get that wax off. If you have a garden, do plan to grow pickling cucumbers.
