Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled... Cucumbers?

I did it... or should I say, we did it!!! The Klause family came over and we pickled cucumbers! Good Times! :)

We used the organically grown dill from our garden and yummy "pickling" cucumbers from Costco. (along with a few other ingredients, of course)

Yee-haw!... I'm ready to move out to the country and milk some cows now! If I can make homemade pickles... and I mean GOOD-TASTIN' homemade pickles... anyone can!

The girls had so much fun cutting the cucumbers and preparing the ingredients! And the end result was ABSOLUTELY delicious pickles (11 jars of them to be exact).

Here's the recipe we used from Mrs. Klause's blog:

Have a blessed "dill-filled" day! :)

You all are such a neat family. I love all the things you do that help teach self-sufficiency and responsibility, while still making it fun!

I, on the other hand, am going to work on how to cook dinner without burning it before I attempt to pickle anything!

I can vouch for the yummy pickles! Our jar was gone in 2 days!!!
