Use un waxed cucumbers for
pickling whole, because the
brine cannot get through the
wax. Also, be sure to remove
the cucumber blossoms com
pletely, because the blossom
may cause the cucumber to
soften during fermentation.
Use a high quality vinegar
with the standard four to six
percent acetic acid. 'Mild tak
ing cider vinegar blends fi*»
vors better than the white vine
gar, but it may darken light
colored vegetables or fruits.
When color is important, as
with pears, onions, and cauli
flower, use the white distilled
vinegar. Do not dilute the vin
egar unless your redpe specif
ically mentions it. Add sugar
for a less sour pickle. Either
white granulated or brown
sugar works well.
Use pure granulated salt, if
you can find it. The caking
preventives in uniodized table
salt may make the brine cloudy
and iodized table salt may
darken pickles.
