In a pickle

The apron is back on. But this time it’s not jam.

You see, a couple months ago, Dave and I joined Weight Watchers. We’re doing pretty well, and one of  our favourite 0 point snacks are dill pickles. We’re gong through them at an alarming rate, and since the local cucumbers are just starting to come in…

I thought why not make a large batch? Mom lent my her old picking book.

And you can tell it’s been well-used.

So I spent a little time slicing cucumbers, measuring spices, and packing jars

And in no time I had four 1L jars of delicious smelling dills. I’ve got 8 empty jars left, so I think I’ll be back to the grocery store this week for a couple more baskets of cucumbers.

    Oh, I bet they smell like heaven. We used to have a great pickle guy at the farmer’s market but he’s gone. I need to learn how to do this. I miss those dilly half sours.
