Variations on a Theme

Guess what I did today? If you guessed "made pickles," then yes, you're right. But you could have also guessed "went to work and had a good day," or "went to the spice store," or "played an actual board game with the kids" and all of those would be right, too! Busy day!

I did not make 22 jars of pickles. I did make 8 pints of spicy bread & butter pickles. I used the same recipe as yesterday but used white vinegar instead of cider vinegar, and added 2 long hot yellow peppers from the farm share. Even before boiling them in the vinegar/spice/sugar solution, they had quite a kick! (Probably because I left in all the pepper seeds...)

Tomorrow I'll get to work on another batch of dills. I might even try fermented pickles. If I'm feeling brave!
