Lemon Cucumber Pickles

Jo Zimny


You can add hot peppers to this if you prefer it spicy. Fermented foods are so good for you and this is much easier than going through the whole boiling bottles process.You can add these to other foods, like tuna salad. You can also add other veggies into this (except tomatoes, they will fall apart).
