Pickles!!!!

Whenever I make pickles, I always think of my favorite Scrubs episode. I can’t figure out how to embed video, so here’s a link to a clip.

Pickles!

Anyhoo, yesterday morning, I canned 10 pints of bread and butter pickles with cucumbers and basil from the garden. I also threw in a few tomatoes and onions, just to see how they will turn out.

Woohoo, I just figured out how to insert more than 1 photo at a time!!!!!!!

The pickling brine, which had to come to a boil, and smelled horrible, and has the whole house still smelling like garlic and pickles!

We are expecting so many cucumbers out of the garden, I imagine I will be able to definitely offer some for sale at the Farmer’s Market in October.
