This year I purchased a Japanese cucumber plant that has cukes that are 10-12" long. However, what amazed me is this plant not only grows long cukes, but many. Yup, it finally happened. Along with a couple of actual pickling cukes from another plant, I had enough to make bread and butter pickles!
There is nothing more satisfying than being able to go out, harvest a crop and turn it into something.
These cukes, are long and much more spiny than the other cukes I have grown, however, they are far more productive than any other variety I have tried for the last 23 years.
Here they are, 4 quarts of bread and butter pickles. No it isn't much, but to us, it is amazing and wonderful!
Has anyone canned with Weck jars? I would love to hear about it.
