I'm a big fan of Bread and Butter Pickles. Robin suggested using the recipe in the Ball Blue Book. So here goes...My first pickles!
I must say that I personally like the Ball Blue Book better than Putting Food By. Yes, it's nice to understand the details that PFB offers, but in all reality the only thing I truly care about is "Will it work?" and "Is it good?" The Ball Blue book offers up descriptions and illustrations that my Type A personality finds comforting. If any of ya'll are new to this like I am, steer towards the BB book first. I don't think you'll go wrong.
I picked a few extra cucumbers this morning and had everything sliced, salted and iced by 6:30 am.
By 8:30 I had everything boiling and (with a little help on the assembly line from SM) we had everything wrapped up by 9:00 am.
They look good!
Next up, a hot pepper mix from BBB to preserve my Yellow Hungarian Wax peppers.
They're starting to turn orange so SM cut one up to taste in his morning breakfast wrap that he makes most mornings.
Hello Kitty! I don't think he thought that they would be that hot. I think I'll tackle that recipe tomorrow.
Till then! Happy 4th to all!
