Lay your large pickle down and with a sharp knife and sturdy hand, slice lengthwise with very thin slices. This is the best way for sandwiches.

My mother used to make a recipe of pickle that was called Ginger Strip Pickles. She used an entire jar or box of ginger for this recipe and very large cucumbers. You had to spoon out the seeds and pulp then cut the cucumber into strips. Does anyone have this recipe? It if very strong, and hot with ginger even though it is sweet too. Very, very good and different. Thanks, any reply greatly appreciated. I have her old recipe but am unable to read portions of it enough to tell what size of container of ginger to use.


Thanks in advance,

Linda from Emporia
