Pickled Dill Gherkins

Pickled Dill Gherkins


Pickling cucumbers freshly picked from my grandmothers garden warms my heart just at the thought, sour and funny face pulling to taste ,they were the things we never ran out of. The seasonings I'm sharing are so simple, and incredibly medicinal - garlic an antimicrobial and dill a herb that gets the digestive juices working. Funnily we always ate them before any meal as children.
