Who would have ever thought when I was growing up, that I'd eventually be able to say I LOVE canning season! LOL Now don't get me wrong, some of it can get old...like if you have to can quart after quart of the same thing, but some of this, some of that is fun...and it's really fun seeing your pantry fill up for the long winter.
Dad's still bringing us cucumbers, so after talking to Mom I decided to make a few of Grandma's lime pickles for them (since I should still have plenty from last year), and try DH's grandmother's dill again, this time adding some pickle crisp so hopefully they aren't mushy...the chickens got last years jars of mush. LOL
Today, I'm starting the lime pickles...they have to soak in lime water for 24 hours, before getting rinsed really well and soaking in some spices before being canned in a couple days. Next week I'll get them canned up as well as some dill, and then see where I go from there. If I keep getting cucumbers, maybe I'll do another batch or two of the lime pickles, cause I know they are well liked by everyone here.
We will see what else we get to can, as the summer progresses. Hopefully we can get a bunch of yummy things canned up for winter. :-))
