Babushka Lusia's Gherkin Brine Recipe














What you will need
: organic cherry tomatoes or gherkins. No, supermarket oversized cucumbers just wouldn't do..even if you cut them up. Try getting gherkins at a farmers market when they are in season. Another thing you will need is a big glass preserving jar (make sure the glass is thick) and a large pot. And of course put any spices you like. Cardamom gives it an extra kick.

Ingredients:
  • Water - 1 litre
  • Coarse sea salt - 4 full tbs
  • Sugar - 2 full tbs
  • White vinegar(6%) - 2 tbs
  • Garlic cloves (peeled,whole) - 4
  • Bay leaves - 2
  • Black pepper corns - 4
  • Corriander seeds - 2tsp
  • Dried dill - a bunch
  • Celery leaves - a few
  1. Wash your gherkins or cherry tomatoes (choose how many you want to pickle yourself).
  2. Put cold water, salt, sugar and vinegar into a large pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Put the gherkins (or tomatoes) into the jar together with the herbs and pepper; pour the hot brine over them and close the jar (not too tightly).
  4. Put the jar in a warm place for 3/4 days (the longer you leave them out, the stronger they will taste), transfer it into your fridge after that.

They are ready! Enjoy them after taking a shot of the best quality vodka (preferably out of a slender crystal liqueur glass, with some salmon and rye bread on the table, so you look and feel like a decadent intellectual from the 1920s, not an alky)

Absolutely fantastic recipe! - I just found your recipe last Sunday after buying a bunch of gherkins from my local organic farmers market here in Bali.
We liked them so much that we have almost finished a whole jar! - so I went and bought a bunch more and am just cooking some more up now!

oops meant to say THANK YOU!

I just got a load of gherkins from a cucumber vine in my neighborhood. I've never made gherkins before so I'm going to give your recipe a shot. Wish me luck!

Nancy

Tip O the late Speaker of The House of Representatives is often quoted as saying politics is local, meaning a politician that helps a constituent with a problem is likely to win that vote based on the personal assistance provided, irrespective of that politician stance on the larger, more weighty, geo-political issues. What then of business, is all business local or international?
This might not be the case for some people, but for me designer shoes seem to always feel a little more comfortable than the inexpensive ones. The shape, the fabric, and the cushion inside are just different. And it feels different. Of course there is the chance that one day I buy a pair of designer shoes and they are awfully uncomfortable, but for the most part my feet feel great.
For a mild sprain a simple ACE bandage wrap can sometimes be the best mode of treatment. Moderate to severe ankle sprains are treated a little more aggressively with either a surgical shoe or a below the knee Cam Walker. A Cam Walker encompasses the foot, ankle, and leg and prevents the patient from bearing weight on their injury, letting the ligaments and/or muscles that were stretched heal properly.
The best way to find cheap shoes or women's sandals at the best prices is browse online for the styles of shoe you are looking for. You can just enter Cheap Shoes, Women's Sandals, Fashion Boots or whatever style you want and you will see that you have several online shoes shops available at your finger tips. [url=http://cheapnikenz-store.webs.com]Nike NZ[/url] They offer a fabulous selection of beautiful women's footwear at affordable prices with high quality and style.
Again using the example above typical size conversion from European size to Australian size may convert Euro size 39 to Australian size 8. If the seller is advertising Euro size 39 [url=http://fornikeaustralia01.webs.com]Nike Shoes Australia[/url] shoes and telling you it converts to Australian size 9, this is vital information. It simply means that this particular shoe is of large fitting. Perhaps you should be looking at size 38 instead for this style. It doesn't mean that the seller has got the conversion wrong, [url=http://fornikeaustralia01.webs.com]Nike Australia[/url] or that the seller doesn't know what he or she is talking about. Internet shoe retailers generally know what they're talking about when it comes to sizing as they would frequently encounter sizing issues when selling online. The seller's information is there to assist you so please take advantage of this and use it.
Running in shoes that have become worn out is a common mistake many runners make. Running shoes break down over time causing a decrease in cushioning, absorption and stability. The mid-sole, which takes the brunt of the abuse (from impact [url=http://cheapnikenz-store.webs.com]Nike Shoes NZ[/url] to push off), often wears out before the tread does. Check out these warning signs to determine where your shoes belong: on your feet, in the closet, or in the donation box.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
