Homemade Pickles

Hello!  I just wanted to share some pics of pickles that I made this year.  I have never made these kind of canned pickles and am so excited to have learned this skill.  These are bread and butter pickles and I used some of my own cucumbers, and some of the little mini ones from the grocery store.  Perhaps one day I'll have enough of my own to really make a good batch of them, but for now store bought does well enough.  

We packed them in really tight, but they still seemed to float?  They all sealed so I hope they are ok.  I did put a jar in the fridge that was only about half full and we opened them a couple days ago and wow, are they good!  They looked really wrinkled and I thought perhaps they were mushy, but no!  They were nice and crunchy. :)  Yum!  

I have always been kinda wary of making pickles, thinking that it was so hard, but they were easy and now I have a few jars in the panty to enjoy over the winter time.  So if you've been putting off trying because you thought they'd be a challenge,  give it a go! 

Do you like pickles?  If so, what is your favourite kind?

Thanks for dropping by!

We love pickles, but haven't made them in years. Yours look very pretty and what an accomplishment! A labor of love for all your hard work.
Enjoy your day and your pickles! ;)
