How I Spent My Summer

Cukes3Cukes4PickleWhen we first started gardening here, I got just enough cucumbers to make one jar of dill pickles at a time.  Now, I make pickles every 2-3 days.  Just this week I put up 16 quarts on Wednesday then was back in the kitchen with canning gear on Saturday. I’ve been through 12 gallons of vinegar or more.   I pick every single cuke on pickling day then find enough to make another quart or two the very next morning.  I’ve run through every interesting recipe in my canning books and tried a few online.  I really wish we had a root cellar.
