Thanks app! That makes sense
. All the tops have popped back down & are now well sealed. Wooohooo!
(I REALLY hope I don't poison anyone with these pickles...
This IS in my kitchen, we have a washer and dryer in our kitchen
(it's nice on cold nights!) & yes I do DESPERATELY need a bigger kitchen... anyway.
I still have 3 cucumbers left I don't know what I'm going to do with them!!
Too many pickles...
Everything boiling or simmering or being chopped it. This is my kind of cooking! Where I can get both hands going at once & really feel like I'm making something
Mason jars in the hot bath. I used 500ml jars, they were the perfect size for this.
Whisking the pickling mixture.
The freshly packed jars before they went back into the bath to be sealed.
The finished product!!
Next time I would soak the cucumbers for a few hour before jarring them because everything really shrunk up after I put them into the jars; but that's just for aesthetics.
Gix - I'm DEFINITELY planning on a pressure cooker for next year, I'm planting tons of squash for the new baby and I want to jar everything up!!
