Remembering Our Danube Swabian Ancestors


Gurken - Sun-Fermented Pickles

by Lizzi Ingrisch via Jody McKim Pharr)

Comment:  A delicious treat, made by my cousin's wife Lizzi Ingrisch.

  • use small cucumbers

  • 1 liter water

  • 1 spoon of salt

  • some dill

  • top it with a slice of bread for the fermentation

Place in glass jar with lid, in the sun for 2-3 days. 

They will spoil if not eaten that week.
