5 comments on “Making Homemade Pickles in a Crock

  1. Lovin' the Red Wing crock — I have hometown pride! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have a little one but not sure quite what to do with it…too small for pickle-makin'. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Looks like you've got two heads of garlic instead of two individual cloves. Might be why it was so garlicky!
    Thanks for the great pictures of the process– very helpful!

  3. Check your crocks to make sure they were not used for lard. The lard gets in to the pours and ruins the pickles when hot brine is used.

  4. Any idea why my pickles "hollowed" out? I followed exact directions,not sure where I went wrong. I'm super disappointed ๐Ÿ™

  5. Katie, I just noticed your comment and sorry for the late response. I am not sure why some of your pickles hollowed out. Maybe they hollowed out because of the type of cucumber they were? But honestly I am not sure. However, I do know that people call those "wedding ring" pickles and they are pretty sought after. I guess they use to be pretty popular back in the day because the seeds of cucumbers can be a little bitter sometimes.
