As another season draws to a close in the Pacific Northwest we are still getting the last of the tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers.
This has been a year for the cucumbers as they seem to be never ending. The real winners this year were SMR pickling and White Wonder both from MIGardener (

We have fermented all of them for enough to last at least the whole winter. The winning fermentation method is using the Weck canning jars with the lid and seal along with a weight to keep everything under the brine. This allows the vessel to build up pressure but let some out so it doesn't explode. This makes a firm yet fizzy pickle that is delicious.
