#14575: Here you go Ang, REC: Mrs. Higginbotham's Zucchini Pickles

Posted by: Dawn_MO at 1:10 pm on Apr 29, 2009

I am going to try the asparagus brine recipe with zuke spears and chunks, but then put them in the fridge instead of water bath them. If you like sweet sour type condiments, in tried and true there is a sweet pickle relish that is so delicious. I think you could use zuke in that recipe too. This freezer pickle recipe might work too. It is so tasty. I have added sliced cabbage to it too and that was good also.
