No Vinegar Dill Pickle

I’ve made some “Salt Fermented Dill Pickles” last week and waited until today to taste one.  They are the tiniest bit salty and delicious.  I can taste a bit of clove so I think that came from the pickling spice.  I’ve posted a picture of my yummy pickles.

BUT, best of all they were so very easy! It took 20 minutes to pop them in the jar.
