Recipe Notes

Make sure the cucumbers are completely washed and completely dried. If they are not dried, at the time of making the pickle, your pickle may get mold.

If you want stronger color in your pickle, keep it more under the sun; if you want light color for your pickle, keep it mostly in shadow).
