Latest Canning Adventure...

I was surfing and searching the Web from one end to another looking for recipes to can dill pickles. My goodness there are an encyclopedia set full of them! I combined a little of this and that from various recipes and came up with my own recipe. I did 4 quarts. I wanted to do more but dh said we were throwing away older pickles I had canned a couple years ago. Anyway, here's the pickles:


  1. You've made great use of the veggies you gathered from your garden. You'll be enjoying the fruits of your labor all winter long. :-)

  2. Around my house dill pickles NEVER get thrown out. I have 4 little pickle monsters that devour every jar I ever bring in here.

    I wish I knew how to can, or even had the time to learn.

  3. Thanks! There are only 2 of us in the house now so many things have to be done in smaller sizes and quantities. When my sons were still young and at home I would always have to double-up when I cooked. Now, it's great when they come over and I tell them to help themselves to all the leftovers in the fridge. :)
