Tiny Adventures: Making Pickles

The cucumber harvest is plentiful this year. At least, compared to years past. So, I thought I’d try making some pickles. This is a tiny adventure for a few reasons, the biggest of which is I’ve never canned anything before (and never made pickles before, either). Canning is scary because, if done wrong, it can make you pretty sick. So….. I did quite a bit of research before delving in. Finally, after I felt like I had a pretty good idea of the dos and don’ts, I gathered the ingredients, took a deep breath, and went for it.

The finished pickles

Turns out that it was pretty easy. And when I woke up this morning, the jars were all sealed up. Very exciting! I’ll let you know how they taste in 6 weeks.
