This past summer I fermented a half gallon jar of cucumbers,onion, garlic and hot peppers. They were delicious but that's a lot and when it got cold I forgot about them. They have stayed in the refrigerator which we keep set pretty cold. I had eaten about 3/4 of the pickles but with the juice it was half full. I just noticed that I have some floating whitish pools on top, it is a very thin layer. Anyone know what this is and if they are still okay or should be tossed? Thank you!
