So cool! Great colors!
Thanks, mithriluna, and WECOME to Home’s Cool! I had a lot of fun with these, after the kitchen cooled off a bit. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it and hope you return, soon!
I canned pickles for the first time this year! I didn’t get to do more than about 6 pints, but it’s a start, and I loved it, and they were amazing. BEST pickles I have ever had. EVER.
Oh, I am so glad for you, Tiff! Now you’ve caught the incurable addiction to home canning! 😀 Yes, those home canned pickles are a delight and we love them, too. I usually make one, one-gallon jar for our whole family for the Thankgiving meal, and we nearly eat them all, every year.
How do you do a gallon jar? Would you post a tutorial?
I’d love to do gallon jars of pickles next year instead of pints. I’ve always loved canning – I grew up doing it. Salsa day was my favorite. My sisters, mom, cousin, aunt, and grandma always got together to do salsa for all our families. Best. Day. Ever.
Oooh! It would be a best day for me, too, if I got help putting up food! (Well, I do get help with the chicken cleaning–never have to turn them into meat, just all the rest. I told my husband early on: I will happily deal with any meat you bring home, just be nice and don’t make me turn cute things into meat, okay? He’s been okay with that, although I know how and have done that part at times.) Also, hubs did two canners full of carrots, once, when I was gone. I mean he did the whole thing: pulling, scrubbing, chopping, and pressuring. I guess I’ve probably had more help than I realize, eh?
Tutorial? I could do that, but not now, since our cucumbers are all tilled in, so couldn’t take photos. I make dill pickles–are they what you like?
There is a recipe here: https://katharinetrauger.wordpress.com/2012/06/26/i-like-pickles-part-2-the-recipes/
You could probably figure it out there. The photo here is a half-gallon…
YES. We love dill the most. THANKS!
I love the colours in that first one.
Yes, me too! It’s my favorite. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
that is such a gorgeous combo of grown goods and color….i feel like i am about to sit down to a cup of coffee and a dish of peaches with you!!
And cream? It’s a date! We never did get over your way, this summer, but we are where we belong, like it or not. Some days I think I’ll run away! 😉
definitely with cream!! and your priorities and place are His perfect design; as are my crazy tutoring hours. His plans, not ours. His grace, His strength, and His joy is our joy. love you.
