I've embarked on a 9 day recipe to make some sweet pickles, the old fashioned way. These are called "Grandma's Society Chips". The first 4 days are a process of soaking the cucumbers, then boiling the liquid and pouring it over them again. I'm on day 5 now, so they are being soaked in a ridiculously sweet syrup.
Only 4 more days to go!
