Few Pickles

Few jars of dill pickles canned yesterday.   Few more to do today.  Didn't get a lot but enough to put up for later.
I layered them first in ice and pickling salt over night and then drained and rinsed well.

Brine - I put in a dill floret from dill I grew alongside the cucumbers and tomatoes.   I use my stove downstairs as I am still a little afraid to use a canner on my glass top upstairs.  Some do use them but I am just a little leery of it breaking the top right now.

These will be good in the winter months

Meanwhile outside are my giant begonias and this leaf will be a good one for casting in cement. Cannot kill these plants.  They love it where they are in the morning sun and afternoon shade.


  1. Betsy, I'd say that is a little more than a few pickles. Don't know how you do it all..Looks yummy..Happy Tuesday..xxoJudy

  2. Those pickles look delicious, yum!

  3. Betsy your pickles look great! I haven't made them in years. I'd love to see how you cast the begonia leaves. That sounds beautiful. Seeing them in magazines has always intrigued me. Have a nice evening!

  4. Betsy,
    My mom used to can what she called Bread and Butter pickles...I used to love them but I have not had them in years... Thanks so much for stopping by!! And thanks for answering my questions regarding your knee replacement. It is getting better but it is just a longer road than what I thought it would be...

  5. I always buy pickle when going to groceries....
    amazing that you can make pickles...

    # Have a wonderful summer

  6. They are very easy to do. Thank you, Betsy

  7. Dearest Betsy,
    Oh, I've always canned inside my oven in a water bath and that has worked fine every time.
    You are a busy bee.

  8. I have heard of canning this way but never got how long or how hot the oven should be.

    1. Dearest Betsy,
      Here is a lot of information:
