Why do we soak cucumbers in water overnight prior to pickling? It's disheartening to bite into one of your homemade pickles only to find it lacks flavor or is soggy instead of crisp. You help ensure the crispness and flavor of your finished pickles by soaking them before pickling to improve their texture and taste. Whether you soak them in ice water, salted water or a lime-water solution, an overnight soak is an important step in many recipes to create quality pickles that you will love.
