The harvesting/canning season has begun here. First it started when we went strawberry picking as I made 46 jars of jam, not quite enough for one a week for the next year, but close! 🙂 Then came raspberries, surprisingly enough we got more then I was expecting from our patch. Not sure of the count there. Now we are busy with green, yellow and purple beans and pickling cucumbers.
So each day you will find us out in the garden picking or in the house blanching beans or canning pickles. 🙂 Today we picked the cucumbers and while I type here the last batch is in the canner. A smaller picking today, just 10 jars.
My favourite Dill Pickle recipe
A nice sprig of dill
1 t. br. sugar
1 T. pickling salt
Several garlic pieces
1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
Fill with cucumbers and then add boiling water. Put on lids and then steam can for 15 minutes. 😀
Next week, I hope to pickle some beans, they are so delicious!!!! I’ll post about that when do them. 😉
