Ah. Yes. There continues to be pickle making. Every few days I have just enough pickles to make 3-4 quarts. So I’m making pickles every few days. It’s mostly dill, but sometimes I make a batch of bread n butter. I am not a giant pickle lover, but when I do eat pickles, I’m more likely to choose bread n butter. When I was young, I loved pickles. Then I sort of grew out of liking pickles. Now, I find my tastes have returned to liking the occasional pickle. Not other pickles though, I only eat the ones I have made.
- Use cucumbers within 24 hours of picking and place in refrigerator if you won’t use them until the following day, drying out is your enemy
- Cut off the blossom end of the cucumber and discard
- Remove the spines from the cucumber
- Do not include the vine end of the cucumber in the jars
- Do not over process
Ok, Jayne, I think I remembered everything you told me!
