Jarring Experience

During the time it took a toddler and 5 year old to nap, I transformed 14lbs of cukes from this:

To this:

10 quarts of pickles (three of refrigerator garlic pickles, the rest of them sealed-in-jar kosher dills). The eleventh jar burst in the canner — I knew something was wrong when there were pickle slices floating all around the jars as they were processing.

    These look awesome– good job!

    I always lose a jar or two during canning too, maybe one every 5 canner loads….

    My parent’s apple tree was VERY productive this year. We are spending this weekend making use of it! Apple butter, apple sauce and cinnamon apples are being canned. (We did 4 quarts of apple sauce today, and started 2 batches of apple butter that are cooking overnight in the crock pots) and of course some apple desserts for now. 🙂

    Please e-mail me your Kosher pickles recipe. Soon, i’m going to be up to my ears in cukes. 🙂
