My good friends from Knoxville make PHENOMENAL hot dill pickles. So I will take the liberty to share my great friends recipe with you! I know you will love it. Surprisingly it isn’t “burn your mouth off hot” or even “buffalo chicken wing hot” it has a really neat flavor! Try it sometime!
1 c. canning salt
Let it boil for 5 minutes. When finished pour into jars. Place boiled lid on top and close. Pickles will seal together. (I cooled mine with a towel over them until I heard them all pop)
I’ve been enjoying all the moments I get to ‘can’ foods! I’ve enjoyed these as a child and thankfully my husband has been so patient and kind as to allow me to gather supplies in the kitchen and often time dirty that place up! So many hours I could tinker in there – making yummy food, finding ways to preserve some and all the while making it a time of fun and enjoyment!
My husband is the best!
You can only imagine how beautiful it smelled in my house the other day…..
Early we started our day long process of canning the 350lbs of tomatoes, and we never imagined it would be as long of a day as it turned out to be! Not everyone can stand the pressure you know….
Cutting tomatoes…..a lot like factory work…a job that requires you to pay attention but becomes so monotonous rather quickly. Of course one small moment of non-paying attention and soon you have a nice cut on your hand! OOPS!
You can only work at one job for so long before you wish you could do ANY other job! The grass always seems greener on the other side, eh? I’m not sure it is, but in our case, we sure thought it would be a great idea.
