What ingredients do you use to make pickles

Answer »

You need pickling cucumbers, short, stubby, and a bit prickly in the skin. After that, it depends on the kind of pickle, but you'll surely need pickling salt (no additives) and spices like dill, garlic, mixed pickling spices, etc. Consult a recipe, but do use the right kind of cucumber for best results.
