Notes

Some vegetables require a much longer time to ferment but I have found with cucumbers they only require about 10 days. But just use your judgement to tell if your batch has fermented. The temperature in my home is 70*F in the Summer if it were in the Winter, the fermentation process may require a longer time frame.
