- The pickle that you made should be kept in a cool and dark place. If it is warm, your pickle might go soft, or mature too fast, and open the lid.
- You can use chickpea to expedite fermentation. Alternatively, you can reduce the amount or make no use of it. If you prefer the latter, keep in mind that the fermentation might take longer.
- You can pickle small vegetables like plums and dill as a whole, but always make sure to make a few incisions into bigger veggies such as melons, and big cucumbers in order for the brine to better instill.
- Make sure to only use fresh vegetables. If it has a moth or rotten part it will ruin all the pickles.
- Ensure that the brine covers all the ingredients.
- You can cover pickles with vine leaves for they have tannin making your pickles crunchier and crispier, therefore more delicious.
- Always make sure to use drinking water for making brine.
- If you want to make a less salty pickle you can use less but do not add less than 2 tablespoons as this would affect its preservation.
