This is probably a dumb question- but if some of my pickles molded due to forgetting to weight my plate that was submerging them in the brine **places hands on head in disgruntled frustration**- do I need to toss the entire batch? Or can I pull the 10 moldy/slimy ones? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
Bascially- I can't find pickling spice ANYWHERE (so I went on with just garlic, dill & peppercorns)...my first purchase of cukes ended up being bad (vendor buried all the bad ones under a layer of good ones), forgot to weight the plate AND I skipped spring water thinking tap should be fine but am now questioning this decision! This was not my year for pickling:o/ Do I need to toss the batch and try again next year?
