How do you pickle something
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Find a good recipe -- like those at http://nchfp.uga.edu/ -- follow exactly (particularly if your pickles are intended to be canned and held on a shelf, rather than always refrigerated). Just about anything can be pickled successfully, but it is essential that you follow a good recipe.
