I just hated to see this left over dill being wasted.

So. After dropping the kid off at work. I checked some local produce stands. And hit pay dirt. Got a couple pounds of small cukes.
Cleaned, sliced, and let sit in ice water while I got things set up.

Packed in jars. I'm using Al's recipe for this. https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t...with-vac-canister.242196/page-15#post-1977330
The only thing I did different was that I used pickle Crisp. Instead of Alum.
Now I know this recipes seems to call for insane amount of garlic. But man they are good.

I like the color of these. They should be darn tasty!

Nice job again!! Way to use everything up. I don’t think you could have too much garlic when making pickles.

Are you going to pickle garlic too?

Those pickles look wonderful Steve! My wife did some jars from our garden in CA, loved them on burgers and for snacking. Nothing grows here in AZ, too hot.

Your on a roll Steve. Good thing you got the eBay ring and lid deal :emoji_wink:
I used a bunch of mine for some chokecherry syrup last weekend. Nice to have around for spur of the moment canning.

She has made a comment about that. Because my project fridge is full. And I am using some of the other fridge. All I have to do is mention buying another fridge. That shuts her up!

Thanks Ray! These cukes most have been fresh from the garden. The color is nice.
