Quick Cucumber Pickles
I am a huge fan of pickled things. There are no fewer than 11 pickled foods in my fridge at this very moment, including but not limited to: cornichons, dill pickle spears, hamburger chips, pickled figs, pickled rhubarb, and cocktail onions. I make all sorts of pickles, from baby carrots pickled with honey and mustard seed, to grapes pickled with cinnamon and black pepper, to onions pickled with clove and juniper.To be clear, this recipe is for quick pickles. Quickles, if you will. Because I have neither the patience nor inclination to do the fermenting required for true pickles. But quick pickles are fun and easy, and this recipe is one of my favorites.
