My pickle recipe isn't actually my recipe. It actually comes from a friend and the last time I used it is also the first time I used it, which was about 10 years ago and my friend was actually there. So, I had a few questions about some details on the whole process. Luckily, another, mutual friend, had just made pickles not to long ago and actually blogged about it, sharing the recipe with some of the exact details I was missing! Yay! Check out the recipe at my friend Aubrey's newish blog, My Oh My! Aubrey is a great cook and I am excited that she's going to be sharing some of her recipes and cooking ideas through her blog. Check it out, she's got some great ones already!
Anyway, back to the cucumbers. Here they are, don't they look lovely? So I had the cukes and zuke, but needed things like jars, salt and vinegar (kind of essential!). I had Lindsay do her homework and then we quick ran to the store for those things and some onions. I really hate running around that much and I also hated paying full grocery-store price for the jars, but time wasn't something I had to waste. We're headed up to Erik's folks' for the weekend and so last night was like my only chance to turn those cukes into pickles.
After I had all my supplies and clean jars, I got to work. I stuffed the jars pretty full, so I thought, but after putting the pickle juice in I think I could've packed them better. Oh well, something to think of next time!
And these cute little things:
Aren't those green peppers the cutest peppers you've ever seen? I have just the recipe I want to try with the jalapenos, so stay tuned because I will definitely share how that went! :-)
