Default What to do with large cucumbers?

Right before leaving on vacation I picked all the proper size cucumbers (pickling variety) and started them fermenting in a crock. Now that I have returned nine days later I have a couple dozen cukes that are quite large, as in 7-9" long, 3" wide, and a pound plus each. Color is green and white with no yellowing. We don't eat raw cukes, don't need any more for fermenting, and don't eat relish, so what do I do with these?

If I cut the ends off and slice them into spears I can fit them in quart jars and pickle them. Would that be worth while or are these too large/ripe for pickling?
