Puttin’ Up Pickles

Just before adding the brine.

Tonight we put up some delicious pickles – 7 quarts of beautiful green pickles.

I couldn’t decide which recipe to use.  Everybody has a favorite recipe. We ended up following and combining a couple.
We put a grape leaf from our vines in the bottom of each jar along with garlic cloves and fresh dill.  I keep staring at the beautiful jars. In two of the jars I added a little bit of pepper flakes that I made from dried peppers from the garden for grins.
The finished product.

Do I really have to wait until Thanksgiving to try them?!

Update: Tried the pickles on Thanksgiving and they were delicious! I will definitely use this recipe again. Pickles were crisp and yummy.
