This week was fast and furious for us, and dealing with the heat has left us all wiped out. Today we finally have a break in the heat so there’s much to accomplish on the to-do list. We have been blessed with an abundance of cucumbers for making pickles. I’ve picked the dill and have all the ingredients ready to begin canning pickles.
If you are from a family that has done canning, there may be a favorite family recipe for pickles (dill, a bread and butter variety, etc). You may ask a family member for a recipe and tips on how they’ve mastered the art of making pickles. One year my pickles turned out too soft and they lacked the crunch I enjoy, I’m determined not to do that again! If you’re starting out “on your own” have no fear! There are many tips and recipes online for making pickles, here is some info to give you a head start.
