Got in the kitchen last night with our first batch of homegrown organic pickles! We were able to make 7 quart jars of pickles - and we're super excited and hope that we get lots more cucumbers in the days ahead. Hal still doesn't have a job so we're hoping this can be his summer activity and that we can sell our pickles for a small profit! I spent a good bit on the spices and jars so we at least want to make back that money and have enough cucumbers to use up all the spices.
I made these pickles by tweaking a recipe given to me by my former supervisor at Clemson. She is an awesome cook and can make anything by hand! She even makes her own tortilla chips! But I haven't made these pickles in almost 7 years because when I first got pregnant with Sarah I couldn't stand the smell of garlic. Kinda funny huh? They'll be ready to eat Friday at midnight - can't wait to try them again! Now what to call them? Heather's Amazin' Dills or Posey's Pernicious Pickles? :o)
