Crock Pickles - The Results

This is continued from 2 weeks ago:  Crock Pickles - The Recipe

Finished Crock Pickle

It is time to taste your pickles 2 weeks after making them.  When you open the lid and remove the stones you will notice some "clowdiness"  - that is normal (bottom left picture).  I have to admit that I am a little paranoid about "fuzzy floating things" in the brine - so after removing all of the pickles I rinse all of them off under cold water to remove any possible sediment (In the five years that I have been crock pickling - I have never been sick from these pickles). 

I wish that I could send you a "virtual" taste over the cable lines!  Simply delightful!!!

NOTE:  Again - cleanliness is the key to safe crock pickling.  If you ever open the lid and notice a fowl rotting stench then don't even try to eat the pickles!  You will know the difference between a good pickle smell and a rotting pickle smell.
