Making Dill Pickles from Large Cucumbers?

I am making dill pickles again, but my pickles this year are getting too fat, but not so long. What I thought was a summer squash plant has turned out to be a pumpkin, and I think there has been some hanky panky cross pollinating with my cucumbers. Does anyone know if you can chunk the cukes, and use a standard dill pickle (or any other flavor) recipe? Anyone with a recipe for chunks of cucumber? I appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

Peel and core the large cukes. Cut in chunks, one inch or so. Add fresh chucked tomatoes and sprinkle with apple cider vinegar, sugar and feta cheese. Spaghetti cheese works too. Add thinly sliced onion if you have some. Put in fridge covered for a couple hours if you have time. If not, eat as soon as it's made. Salt and pepper to taste.

You can certainly slice them and make pickles. You buy them from the store that way.

I have gotten some large cucumbers out of my garden and made them into pickles. If the seeds are too mature (tough) then take them out. You still have a lot of meat left to work with. I make dill sticks by slicing the cucumbers about five inches long and about an inch wide and treating them as slices.


They are really great. I have also make bread and butter pickles out of the sticks, but cut them into two inch lengths. They are really perfect to use for pickling.
