Coming down the home stretch now on Day 10 wasn’t nearly as complex as the chopping and grating of Day 9.
As I drained off all of the liquid, I measured and it was about the same as I added yesterday. Because they didn’t seem to have changed much in size I felt safe in boiling up a gallon of plain water today. The pickle chunks got covered with plain boiling water and that’s all for today folks
I looked ahead to Day 11 and it’s a pretty exciting day with new and varied ingredients. I am hoping that I will still be able to store them outside without drawing in undesirable critters.
