Here is a link to my favorite pickle recipe, I have made these since I was in high school. These make the best deviled eggs, I add a little of the syrup to the egg yolks and minced pickles. On a hamburger, they are fantastic. I love these pickles and even people who don't like pickles, like these.I would love a good pickle recipe. No-one seems to have a recipe around here that turns out good pickles.
Cucumbers should be a super easy crop for you. They are heat lovers. i plant them every year. Some years, I get a bumper crop, other years, I get just enough for fresh eating. My favorite variety is Suyo Long. It grows about 12" long, though best harvested at 10" or less. Tender, never bitter, open pollinated. Cukes do best if given a sturdy trellis to grow on.
]I believe that would be a different variation compared to what we have here in the Philippines.. I hope someone can send me some seeds so i can start planting different kinds of plants in my backyard garden.
