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.

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!

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...
Hugs,
Debbie

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.
Hugs,
Mariette

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