Pickle Follow Up

So yesterday I put the pickles in the refrigerator to stop the fermenting and I gave one to The Husband to try. Today I popped this one on to a plate and tried them for myself. Here’s what I think. They’re what I like in pickles, garlicky and crisp but the flavor isn’t quite right. They don’t seem salty enough, maybe. I should have added a tad more dill, maybe. I could have used pickling spice instead of just coriander, maybe. I’m really not sure. The method worked really well, the flavor not so much. They’re good enough to eat but not what I wanted. Next time I’m going to treat the whole thing as an experiment and do each jar with a different combination of spices and see what happens.

  1. That’s a great idea – pickling as science! I’d probably have trouble keeping track, though –

    Well, it looks delish. But I agree that a study of pickles is a worthwhile endeavor.
