7 Day Spicy Pickles

7 Day Spicy Pickles

Just a quick picture of some more 7 day pickles.  I used a 5% salt brine (50 grams of salt per liter of water), with a lot of garlic, black and green peppercorns, coriander, whole mustard seed, a couple of bay leaves, and 3 hot peppers.  I also added a few grape leaves to help the pickles stay crunchy.  Special thanks to The Gan Project for providing the cucumbers and garlic.  This time they came out perfectly.  The major difference from the last time was I used less brine relative to the number of pickles, so they were not to salty.  I put it all together and just let them sit on my counter for about a week.
