Pickle in a Bottle: [Back to First Page]
Amaze your friends with this clever idea. You will end up with large pickle in a narrow neck bottle and they will be asking, “HOW DID YOU DO THAT?!”
You will need a narrow neck clear bottle. Locate a cucumber that can easily be inserted into the opening. The sunshine will “cook” your cucumber unless it is covered well with leaves. If not covered with cucumber leaves then make a cover over the bottle with fabric, newspaper (weigh it down with dirt around the edges) or something that will shade it. You could even use a chair or stool over top of the bottle.
Check it every day. When it almost fills the bottle cut the stem.
Boil 1-cup vinegar, 1-cup water, and 2-tablespoons pickling salt. (Have an adult help you)
Using a funnel, pour the hot liquid over the cucumber and put the lid on, this will turn it into a pickle.
Now enjoy how smart everyone thinks you are!
