Also on Saturday we went to my mom's place to cut the grass and while I was there I rescued some cucumbers from her garden. Certain that I wasn't going to consume 4lbs of cukes in the next week or so, I make 2.5 quarts of bread and butter pickles. I can't wait to give them a try. I meant to add a couple of hot peppers to one of the jars, to give them a bit of a kick. Maybe next time.
This is the first time I've done any canning in about 10 years, but I think I'm on a roll. I want to do some corn relish next and maybe some chow-chow. mmm green tomatoes! I need to get some smaller jars, I only have quarts and that's a heck of a lot of anything to open!
