Yes, it's summertime!
Today's winner- cucumbers.
They will soon be considered pickles- lucky guys!
The fundamentals of pickles are simple- pick good vegetables, use flavors you enjoy (I opted for fresh dill and garlic in addition to the vinegar+spices), and have fun.
There are hundreds of recipes online, so I'll spare you my fumbley, imperfect science.
You can make refrigerator pickles that don't require brining or hot baths.
I went with the canning method since I was making multiple jars.
