Hello! I hope you are having a great day!
With the last of summer comes some canning here in my house. We made some pickles to add to the pantry. We made some sweet pickles and some dill pickles.
For the sweet pickles we cut up nice little slices.
I couldn't grow enough cucumbers in my garden this year for pickling, and the Lord provided some for us through the grocery store. They rarely have pickling cucumbers and this week as I walked into the produce section there they were sitting on a cart. We are friends with one of the produce men and he helped us by opening up boxes and helping us to select some of the best ones. SO very thoughtful he was.
We also cut some cucumbers up into spears for the dill pickles. The cucumbers were way to big to pickle whole.
We bought some fresh dill. Then added sprigs of dill and some garlic cloves to the jars before adding the cucumbers and brine.
I've also learned to make the brine for the pickles... thanks to my parents. It is wonderful to learn these kinds of skills from your parents, or grandparents....passing down the information.
My favourite are the sweet pickles!
My daughter's favourite are the dill so we made lots of each.
Do you like pickles? Have you made your own? Do you use a family recipe?
A wonderful addition to the pantry that will make us smile in the winter.
Thank you for taking the time to drop by! Praying you have a blessed day!
