One of my grandfather’s favorite things to pickle was his own cucumbers. His small garden, tucked between his house and the neighbors’, was filled to the brim with cucumbers. Each year, he harvested and peeled them and made German pickles called “senfgurken” out of them. He then canned batches to keep in the basement and enjoy throughout the year. I loved those sweet, tangy pickles and still think about them often, even though my grandfather hasn’t been with us for many years now.
