What Kind of Cuces for Pickles

Marilyn asks… Hi Jenny , Are there any other kinds of cucumbers that can be used to make the Cold Water Pickles ?. I love your recipes ! 🙂

My Response…

The only kind I can ever find are Persian and Kirby and I have used both. If you can find any other kind (or grow them) they have names like Kirby, Liberty, Gherkin, Cornichon, or Lemon Cuces. They should not be waxed since you don’t peel them and should be as young and firm as possible. I would love to grow them myself, but then rabbits suddenly appear! – Jenny Jones
