I got the ingredients today and made up 7 half pint jars.  I had a purple onion on hand, and cider vinegar, which is yellow.  The jars are those embossed jelly jars.  It turned out not only very tasty, but quite pretty as well.  thank you so much.

Good to know you like them!  No idea on shelf life.  I have found that pickle type products seem to last forever.  I still have jars of Piccalilli that I canned in 2003 still perfectly good.

The cucumber friends called this morning and asked what I would need to make up some more pickles.  I asked why and was informed they had 19 more waiting on their counter for me. LOL
They bought me two cases of pint jars, a gallon of vinegar and 6 humongous red onions.  We are splitting the batches.
I made one quart for him substituting splenda and one tsp. of honey for the sugar.  (He is diabetic).  That turned out pretty good as well. 
I did a half pint with just a little finely chopped jalapeno, but I want to wait a day or two before sampling it.
I will definately be making more with the splenda, the honey isn't really necessary, but adds and interesting flavor.
Next I am gonna try the recipe adding some baby yellow crookneck squash.

Hey, YT, I was noticing that the cucumbers I was slicing up for pickles kinda looked like swiss cheese inside, and dry.  So I tasted a slice.   It was as bitter as a green persimmon.  I barely got my teeth sunk in and couldn't get it out of my mouth fast enough.   

I asked the neighbors that gave them to me, and they admitted they had not eaten any, themselves. 

We all want to know why the cukes turned out this way.  didn't seem to matter if they were overly large or regular size.  these cukes have yellow stripes on them... do you know why they are bitter?

The pickles seem to be fine, so far.

Depends on variety.  Pickling cucs have to be picked early and often.  Don't let them get 'over ripe'.  Sounds like they may have dried out at a point and then watered creating the bitterness.

Hope that helps.

I think most likely not watered enough. Today I checked my Ortho garden problem book and it said not watering cucumbers enough will make them bitter.
I haven't had a chance to tell the neighbors yet, but I think their cukes are finished, anyway.

At least 4" of mulch cures alot.  Reduces watering, pests etc.

I was thinking about that, too.  he's had a physically rough time this year and it's a wonder they put a garden in at all.
Is it true that rotting organic material pulls nutrients out of the soil in order to feed microbes?
He's been tilling in cow manure the last two years, in the fall, but which would be a better mulch under the plants, newspaper or shredded leaves?

Yes...initially pulls nutrients but I have never had any problems with it.  I use strictly grass clippings.  Just have to be careful not to get them against the plants.  Always keep away just a little bit so if they heat up it won't burn.  I had some of my beds at my old place so soft after a couple years that no soil prep was needed at all.  Just scratched it up with a rake and planted.  Course you have to use wide row or bed gardening to do that and be very religious not to step on the growing area.

I have heard of folks using both leaves and newspapers but never have personally.  With both there is the blow away factor. lol.

Cow and horse manures are good but if not composted at high heat there is the weed seed problem.

Personally, I plant in pure rabbit compost.  This year I went to half barrells for the tomatoes and I am so glad.  No wilt yet.  The plants are pushing 9 feet tall and I can no longer reach the tops to stake them (using old canapy poles that lock together) but this is the best production year yet, I'm happy.

Not happy about the new paper wasps that have taken over my blackberries, preventing me from picking a really nice plump harvest.  Got stung.  I'm afraid to even cut the grass back there now. 

Yankee Trader, I am having alot of fun with your recipe.  Everything I put in it comes out "perty durn good."  Thank you again.

Glad you're enjoying the recipe!

Rabbit manure is absolutely the best! We had a huge pile when we bred rabbits at the old place.  Can't wait to get em going again down here.  All my old equipment was ruined by the folks who took the old farm over so I will have to start with new cages and that's what's been holdin me up as you know I make so much $ where I work! haha

I had hanging cages - 3 and 4 holers in 2 rooms of my barn.  An outside lean to area of the barn was the grow out room. At the peak we were running 38 does.  We got lucky and purchased the cages used and fully furnished down to the breeding stock from a breeder that was having a divorce sale. lol. Now if I can just have that luck again!
With all the shade here I would probably start under the trees with just a couple does and a buck.  Just want to provide for us and maybe sell a couple, not go commercial like I did before.  As with everything here I am being patient.  Not being self-employed any longer puts a large crimp on my farm work.  If I had to do it over again I would definately remain on my own, but that is my fault for not checking out the opportunities properly before moving.  I was in a hurry LOL.

A friend of mine in Rolla had downsized his rabbitry, and his rabbits from regular Satins to mini-satins, and had some double and triple hanging wire cages for sale.  When I get off line I will call him and see if he has any left.  I think he was asking $10.00 a hole.  They are well built and not rusty. 

I have a double and single free standing hutch I would loan you but they are heavy to move.  The double is anyway.  I haven't used them for years.

Manure = Pickles........All back to that self-sufficiency!  Another step toward it with fresh rabbit!

Breed choices - New Zealands or Californians.  That is no prob though as I am pretty sure I have a local source.  Just haven't asked yet.

Thanks!!

Sorry Eeyore, I doubt if I can find a connection between that song and this thread subject, other than white satins are a rabbit breed variety, and rabbits make manure, you know the rest already.   LOL
