A couple of firsts this week:
1.Using the sanitize mode on my dishwasher. I’m so glad we have that on our dishwasher. It’s so handy to have when you like to can a lot of food that grows in your garden.
2. Canning pickles. It’s not so hard. It’s pretty dang easy actually. Boil sugar, vinegar, and spices together until all the sugar has dissolve. Seal, boil the jar of pickles in the hot tub for 10 minutes.
I don’t know why I ever found the task daunting before. I’m always kind of leary about trying my own canned foods but if you hear a pop or a suction noise then they’re ok to eat.
Recipe Diaries is going to be announcing some news in the next coming weeks here, so stay tuned. It’s very exciting!
