Pickles! Yum?

Hi everyone! This week we are making pickles!


I am a big chicken when it comes to really preserving food...


so I make refrigerator pickles...

                          


My kids LOVE pickles...



Mostly I make dill...


with lots of garlic and fresh dill...
 
                            

This year I made a couple pints of mixed veggie pickles too....they are ready today!


Okra...


Squash, brussel sprouts, onions...

                       


The okra is a little weird though...it has, um, snot? A clear goo or sap...I'm hoping the vinegar makes it go away! Because I love okra.

                     

Do you all make pickles? Jam?

 Have a great weekend!

 love

  2. Did I see brussel sprouts? They looked sooo yummy! I am like you I tend to freeze items, scared of canning. Afraid I may kill someone.... LOL Enjoy your harvest! Kit
