Cornichons with bigger cucumbers


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone-

I wanted to pickle some cornichons. I plan to use Madeline Kamman's recipe from the making of a cook 2nd edition p. 315. I've found small pickling cukes in the market. These cukes are 3 inches long an 3/4 of an inch wide. Should I process them whole or cut them in quarters before packing them in mason jars?? If I cut them in quarters to get them to size, will I forfeit texture? Thanks so much for any guidance on this one.
