Adventures in Pickling

Pickle making adventures!

Our garden has been producing tons of cucumbers this year!  I've been pickling all the things!

At first, I just used premixed packets for my pickling.  I made sweet relish & kosher dills that way.

Then I found this recipe for refrigerator pickles.  At the time, I had enough cucumbers for just 2 jars, so I decided to try it out.  I modified the recipe just a little by adding garlic salt along with fresh garlic.  I also added dried dill along with the fresh dill.  I wanted super flavorful pickles!

The pickles did their thing in the refrigerator for almost a week before I cracked them open.  They were absolutely fantastic & so full of flavor!

I loved them so much that I made another batch this morning!  I canned these pickles, so we'll see if they have the same goodness as the refrigerator ones!

I'm not a huge fan of canning, but I've been doing it in small batches this year, which makes it more enjoyable.  This morning, I only canned 4 small jars of pickles.  It still took quite a while, but it wasn't absolutely overwhelming.

I really liked making pickles this season.  I loved mixing different spices together to create something delicious!
