Scent of a Pickle to Be (day 4)
I still can’t do anything other that give the pickles a quick check every day but have noticed the brine is taking on a defined scent. It’s the scent of a vined plant, sappy and fresh turning into something more dense. It makes me realize why cucumber – melon is such a popular scent. Today it smells less like a pile of grated cucumber and more like a home made pickle. If they end up tasting and smelling like the pickles I remember as a kid, I will be much pleased. Scoot on to see the real action on day 8!
