In previous summers I made jam and jelly. I still have some of those jars of fruit preserves so haven’t felt compelled to make more. Instead I’ve turned to pickle making.
There have been cucumbers in our last two CSA boxes. One box had a bunch of dill. I made a batch of sweet pickles, which I love, and then two batches of dill pickles, which Terry prefers.
While we were staying at our daughter’s house last week I found a bounty of cucumbers she had been given by a church member. I made pickles with those, too. Our son-in-law likes pickles.
After we came home I found a recipe for pickled strawberries so I tried those.
The combination is delicious.
This pickling thing is becoming an obsession.
